Energy Consultants, LLC The Annenberg Community Beach House was originally developed during the Gold Coast era of the 1920s by William Randolph Hearst for actress Marion Davies and was a hot spot on Santa Monica's Gold Coast, with Hearst and Davies entertaining luminaries from the Hollywood set, such as Charlie Chaplin, Louis B. Mayer, Samuel Goldwyn, Greta Garbo, Clark Gable and other stars of the day. Redeveloped after damage from the 1994 Northridge Earthquake, the Beach House has been awarded a Gold LEED rating from the US Green Building Council.
