I have had the pleasure of working with Commercial Design Solutions (CDS) on several of our Multi-Family Communities over the past several years and could not be more pleased with Tera, Tyler and the entire CDS Team. From design to installation of exterior amenities and interior renovations to complete community branding with exterior signage, the CDS team worked seamlessly and professionally with ownership and our On-Site teams to ensure the project met and exceeded expectations. I would highly recommend CDS to anyone looking to stay in the forefront of current design and aesthetic.

I visited Bridgwater (located in Colorado) two weeks ago and got to see the amazing transformation of the leasing office and clubhouse. As always, you have done an amazing job with the space! You worked in additional seating areas in the clubhouse to accommodate our residents as well as adding foosball and shuffleboard to create a fun environment. Customer service is a key component of our business and moving the beverage station to the leasing office area allows us the opportunity for more interaction with our residents. Thank you again for a job well done!

“Commercial Design Solutions (CDS) has exceeded our expectations with transforming Verandas through their designs and implementation of those. Throughout the renovation process the CDS team was continually available to answer questions promptly and create effective solutions when needed. We’re excited about the repositioning of this property in the marketplace and will definitely utilize Commercial Design Solutions in any upcoming design work for future properties.”

Commercial Design Solutions (CDS), has been a key part of Bascom’s success in creating a very positive branding image for the renovation of 200-plus apartment communities throughout the US over the past 15 years. Through applied market understanding, creative design application, and fine-tuned service…CDS’s efforts have helped give Bascom’s portfolio a keen edge over competitive properties in a wide spectrum of market conditions. Commercial Design Solutions design teams are always a pleasure to work with, and can be counted on to find just the right solution for any design or market related challenge.

Over the past few years I have personally worked closely with Commercial Design Solutions (CDS) during the renovation of multi-family communities. I have been impressed with their dedication and personal attention to details; ensuring that the end product is one that we, (the client) and themselves can be proud of. CDS provides detailed working drawings for each renovation that is clear and concise with the project at hand. I would highly recommend CDS to anyone looking for a design team that thinks ahead and is easy to work with.

I have worked with Tera Shatsky and her company CDS, with over 20 apartment projects, both in new development and remodels. In addition to being a highly creative and talented interior designer, Tera Shatsky possesses the ability to deliver a project on time and in budget. Tera is a pleasure to work with and I would recommend her without reservation.

I’ve been extremely happy with CDS’s overall design for Montego Heights, their attention to detail and their willingness to work closely with the owner to create a collaborative and productive atmosphere. I have found that the end result of satisfying the client’s needs and desires is always paramount, with their creative approach to the design process being well tempered with practicality towards the project requirements.

Premier Business Centers is honored to recommend Commercial Design Solutions, LLC (CDS) as part of your design team. We have been working with CDS for over 10 years where they have helped us remodel many of our businesses throughout Los Angeles, Orange County, San Francisco, San Diego and Dallas, Texas. 

They have been very instrumental in keeping us updated in a very competitive industry. We highly recommend the entire CDS team as they can help you keep up with very creative designs within any market and help you stay competitive.

Tera and her team at Commercial Design Solutions “knocked it out of the park” for us at our Temecula, CA property.  This 320 unit apartment community was re-designed, re-habbed, and re-positioned among its competitive set to offer superior amenities for a superior customer experience.  Acacia Park was transformed into Vista Promenade by the CDS design team formulating a cutting edge plan on this 80’s vintage asset in a great location!  From the new Dog Park to the Poolside Cabanas, our Residents are excited to come home.
