CBD Companies was established in 2006 by principals Charles Sangster and Courtney Wilson.  Together they bring decades of commercial real estate experience in Central New York to the firm.  In a short period of time CBD has acquired an 1,135,000 sf portfolio of owned or managed properties.  Projects to date include the repurposing of the former O’Brien & Gere building at 5000 Brittonfield Parkway into an office/medical park as well as the conversion of the former HSBC building in downtown Syracuse, NY from a nearly empty Class B office building into a Class A Tower anchored by the Barclay Damon law firm.


CBD Companies is currently headquartered in Syracuse in the AXA Towers.
