I think my apartment building, the Wilson, is one of the best buildings downtown. But when Oklahoma-native Shawn Todd opened the restored 400 N. Ervay, I definitely had a wandering eye. The old courthouse/post office has history (Judge Sarah T. Hughes’ courtroom is there; Roe v. Wade made a stop in the courtroom; and it has connections to Bonnie and Clyde); it has class; and it has great residents (hi, Charles, Noah, and Kevin!).
If you’re interested in taking a look at this beautiful building, now’s your chance. As part of Architecture360, the 30-day celebration of architecture in Dallas, you can win a pair of VIP tickets (valued at $125 each) to Thursday’s Rockitecture event at 400 N. Ervay from 7 to 9:30 p.m. There will be cocktails, food, and a silent auction with items from lovers of design and architecture. For you who win the VIP tickets, you’ll get a tour with Todd and see the sunset from the roof deck. Enter here. I’ll announce the winners by 10 a.m. tomorrow. If you don’t win, there are still general admission tickets available here.
UPDATE: We have picked our winner. If you didn’t receive an email from me, I’m sorry. However, there are still general admission tickets available.
