do you remember way back when it was a vacant tire factory with all the broken windows, yet looking so cool from the releif art on the walls?

Built in 1929 for the Samson Tire and Rubber Company (later bought by Uniroyal) The Citadel is the 2nd most recognized building in Los Angeles, the first being Los Angeles City hall.

The plant was modeled after a 7th Century B.C. ancient Assyrian palace including a 1,350-foot-long (later expanded to 1,750) crenulated concrete wall decorated with heraldic griffins and bas-reliefs of Babylonian princes carved into the stone between impressive pillars and towers. The design, dedicated to the civilizations of Sumeria, Akkadia and Babylonia, conveys strength and style.

This historic building was in need of restoration and the current owners selected ACE Restoration, after visiting many of our historic restoration projects (The New Mart Building, Disney's El Capatain Theater, Huntington Library, Griffith Park Observatory) and seeing the quality of our work for this important project.

The scope of this work included:
•Re-creating & re-casting original architectural details, that had fallen of the building or were damaged.
•Extensive patching of eroded walls areas
•Epoxy injection of walls cracks
•Skim coating of wall to bring surface back to original finish
•Caulking of all joints & windows
•Installing clear consolidate & sealer to natural concrete bands
•Installing waterproof coating to entire building.
•Protective coating.
