A HISTORY
OF SUCCESS
25 YEARS
LONG

CDS was founded in 1993, at practically the same time as the birth of Retail Real Estate in Italy. Behind it is a solid family tradition, dating back to the 1960s, that has always helped the Group to grow and consolidate its role as developer and general contractor in the development and construction of retail, logistics, office and hospitality structures.
Today, 25 years later, we are one of the leaders in the Italian real estate industry and a major player in the development of retail real estate, with over 70 structures completed in this 25-year period, covering
an overall surface area of more than 1,000,000 m2.
This extraordinary achievement is the result of our hard work and business model that generates synergies between the various phases and creates added value for all the parties involved, namely, the investors, co-developers and end users.
