Renovation of Greenwich Post Office Receives Award from the Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation

RH Greenwich Post OfficeConnecticut Trust for Historic Preservation awards are given annually for outstanding preservation projects and the people who have made significant contributions to the preservation of Connecticut’s  historic buildings and places.

The Greenwich resident who made this possible was Greenwich Retail, LLC, led by Anthony Malkin and his father Peter Malkin, a Greenwich philanthropist who is President of the Greenwich Tree Conservancy, founder of Greenwich Green and Clean,  and Chairman of the Merritt Parkway Conservancy.

Mr. Malkin purchased the Post Office building from the Federal government and then worked with Restoration Hardware, within the requirements of a preservation covenant, to restore the building to its former grandeur and transform it into a showcase for RH.

The Greenwich Post Office, completed in 1917, features monumental Corinthian columns in a sweeping façade and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
