Jackson Things to Do: 60 reviews and 159 photos

New Orleans Saints running back Deuce McAllister and Historic Restoration Inc. of New Orleans have formed a partnership to restore the King Edward and the taller adjacent Standard Life into a mixed use building of high rise condos, hotel, restaurant, nightclub, and shopping space. The older and more famous King Edward is discussed elsewhere, but the higher Standard Life Building deserves attention here. The footprint of the building is actually rather small, which makes the 18 story building look taller than it really is. Nevertheless, this is the tallest building in town. The building has already undergone some renovation and there are city offices still resident in the upper floors.
