Experience


Kyle Kamin is a Vice Chairman in the Chicago Office of CBRE, the world’s largest commercial real estate firm. He has played an instrumental role in shaping the Chicago real estate landscape and is regarded as one of the preeminent real estate consultants in the country. He was named 40 Under 40 by Crain's Chicago Business, an annual look at Chicago's top business leaders under the age of 40, and he was recently the only real estate professional named in Crain's Tech 50 for being at the forefront of Chicago's technology scene.

In 2012, Kyle represented Motorola Mobility in their HQ relocation from Libertyville to the historic Merchandise Mart. Mayor Rahm Emanuel declared the deal “a Game Changer" as it solidified Chicago as the technology hub of the Midwest and contributed to the city's largest single employment influx ever.

In 2013, Kyle represented Google in what many consider to be the most transformational real estate deal in the history of Chicago. The project paved the way for the evolution of Fulton Market from a meat packing district to a thriving commercial and entertainment area, and extended Chicago’s central business district to west of the Kennedy Expressway. The economic impact of this project on Fulton Market has been estimated at over $15 billion. Since the inception of the submarket, Kyle has represented more than 50% of all tenant activity in Fulton Market and has been responsible for the anchor transactions in 905 W Fulton, 1000 W Fulton, 1330 W Fulton, 1375 W Fulton, 210 N Carpenter, 171 N Aberdeen and 401 N Morgan.

In 2020, Kyle and his team represented Horizon Therapeutics in the acquisition of the former Takeda Campus in Deerfield Illinois. The acquisition of the 3 building, 660,000 SF, 70 Acre campus was the largest suburban transaction in the Chicagoland area in over a decade.

Kyle has managed more than 50 million square feet of real estate transactions across the globe valued at more than $20 billion. His clients include Accenture, Comcast, Edelman, Google, Horizon Therapeutics, KPMG, Northwestern University, Mondelez, and Yelp; as well as several of the world's leading law firms, including Barnes & Thornburg, Jenner & Block, Latham & Watkins, Neal, Gerber & Eisenberg, Perkins Coie, Proskauer Rose, and Schiff Hardin.
