Experience the Difference

Specializing in multifamily podium projects.


I welcome you to my website. My name is Larry and I’m the President and CEO of Construction Development Consulting Services (CDCS), a turn key construction consulting agency specializing in the multifamily niche of the SoCal Market.
I work with each client directly and I will make sure you’re taken care of and satisfied from start to finish.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Introduce Yourself

Dreams Can come True.

From Concept to completion

In our nearly 40 years of experience we have assisted in the development and construction of hundreds of projects for multiple clients. Some are large institutional REITs and others are individual private owners managing financial portfolios. Often the initial discussion is literally memorialized on a back of a napkin and so it starts…

Our firm is well connected with trade and design professionals to deliver quality at a value. We are also affiliated with multiple municipalities and utility agencies to aid each project when (not if) they hit a snag.

Our projects normally complete at 10-15% below market value.
