If you’re of a certain age in Dallas, “behind the pink wall” is a familiar phrase from a bygone era. In the 1960s, it was a marketing phrase that made its way into the local vocabulary and denoted a certain elegant part of town (then considered way, way north). To live behind the pink wall was to have an address with serious social cachet in midcentury Dallas — legend has it Ebby Halliday herself coined the phrase.
The wall today is more beige than pink. It runs on north side of W. Northwest Highway from the Athena to Preston Road and rounds the corner heading north for a jog. As columnist Jon Anderson noted, locals think of it as a shrine.
Our Tuesday Two Hundred is behind the pink wall at 6145 Bandera Ave. #C, located on the second floor of Park Sovereign Condominiums. Inside, it’s a burst of Midcentury Modern style, fun and fabulous, designed in part by James McInroe.
This pied-à-terre has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,509 square feet, built in 1957.
