The historic U.S. Post Office and Courthouse building — which recently was converted into a luxury 78-unit apartment building with a working post office on the ground floor — has landed on the market. The owners of the 100,000-square-foot historic building at 400 N. Ervay in downtown Dallas has hired HFF to market the property. The 84-year-old building also includes 12,503 square feet of retail space, which is 100-percent occupied. Developer Shawn Todd of Dallas-based Todd Interests and Moriah Real Estate Company Development are the property owners. Todd spent years redeveloping400 N. Ervay during the recession. The developer worked with Preservation Dallas in restoring the historic 1930s-era building to its original glory, which includes colorful frescos on the ceiling. At the time of its grand re-opening in 2012, Scott Porter, managing director of CBRE and member of Preservation Dallas told me the building was a great historic treasure.
