IT'S ANYTHING BUT STANDARD
The Standard Life Building, originally known as the Tower Building, was built in 1929 by New Orleans architect Claude Lindsley. After the stock market crash plunged the country into the Great Depression, the building was constructed to fulfill a demand for more office space in order to attract more businesses in the building and to the city of Jackson, MS. Upon completion, the Standard Life Building became the largest reinforced concrete building in the world and the tallest building in Jackson, MS at the time it was built.
