New living quarters are on the market in downtown Shreveport. The Standard at the corner of Market and Texas is now leasing apartments in the historic 10 story building.

Here's some historic information posted online about this iconic building:

The Standard was originally commissioned in 1910 by Peter Youree, where he headquartered the Commercial National Bank. Over the years, the building changed hands many times and served many uses including as a radio station and as an office building. In 2018 the building was transformed into 72 uniquely designed apartment homes. Some of the original elements of the building, such as exposed original brick, floors, and columns along with modern luxury flourishes have been combined to create the unique atmosphere of the Standard Lofts.

You will find prices ranging from $650 to $1400 for the larger 2 bedroom units that feature nearly a thousand square feet.
