The Archer Warehouse is a contributing resource in the Brady Historic District, a commercial and industrial area associated with the network of railroads that influenced land use patterns along late-nineteenth and early-twentieth century transportation networks. The utilitarian Archer Warehouse was constructed in phases between 1925 and 1952 and served as a warehouse for wholesale distribution.
The George Kaiser Family Foundation rehabilitated the 73,000 Archer Warehouse to transform it into a mixed-use hub in the Downtown Tulsa Arts District. It went from a blighted non-descript building to a handsome brick structure with commercial tenants lining the ground floor. The vibrant building now houses artist studios and apartments upstairs, local retail establishments and restaurants on the ground floor, and a popular jazz club in the basement.
