Historic Work

What's old is new

Over 100 years ago, our firm’s original founder set our groundwork in commercial design. By the 1940’s, we ventured into our first ‘branded environments’ work with Giant Tiger stores, an innovative concept in discount retailing. Soon after, we were commissioned us to do Cleveland’s first shopping center. From there our portfolio grew to include malls in addition to specialty retail work. By the 1970’s Jencen’s reputation as a national leader in branded environments was established.
