JCI @ 3900 Willow – Deep Ellum

JCI’s office is located in a WWII industrial building at 3900 Willow Street that was converted into cool and creative multi-tenant office space. They recently leased a 10,000+ SF multi-level suite and designed a one of a kind space for their employees and clients. JCI’s president Andy Jones collected vintage travel trailers from the 1950’s to the 1970’s for the new office.

The second floor is a loft design with custom wood “pallet” workstations. Personal attention to detail has been given the office & everything is customized from the furniture,lighting, and artwork to the antique trailer
