Archer Custom Builders has a passion for restoring old buildings and giving them new life and purpose. In addition to working with our clients to execute their projects, our company continues to invest in properties in the downtown Memphis area.

136 Webster Avenue

Memphis, Tennessee

Contractor: Tom Archer, Archer Custom Builders

Architect: Colin McDoniel, Dicot Architecture 

Our most recent undertaking, this former warehouse structure was built in 1920, originally serving as a grocer warehouse.  Located right off of South Main Street, 136 Webster Avenue was acquired by Archer in 2016, and the building is currently being redeveloped and renovated. We have partnered with CEO and owner of Castle Retail Group, Rick James, to bring a long-awaited grocery store to downtown Memphis later in 2021.

Rick James, a grocery veteran of 45 years, will soon begin the process of completing the first floor of the building that once housed Liberty Cash Grocers, Inc. “I have had an eye toward downtown for 20+ years, waiting for the population and location to make the venture favorable,” James said. “This site is perfect for our needs and will serve a growing
population in the south end of downtown.”

The second floor will be the new home to the administrative offices of Freedom Prep Charter Schools
