About Miglin Properties


Oakbrook Terrace Tower - Miglin Properties

Miglin Properties offers real estate development, leasing, management and tenant services in commercial, retail, industrial and office space in Chicago and surrounding areas. Miglin Properties began with Lee Miglin. During his 50-year career in real estate, Lee Miglin sold, leased and developed millions of square feet of land and warehouse, manufacturing and office space. Lee Miglin represented a great number of national and international corporations, including General Motors Corporation, General Electric Corporation, Upjohn, Kimberly-Clark, American National Can, Robert Bosch, GmbH and others.  He continued to specialize in the development of more than 5 million square feet of warehouse and industrial buildings for corporations and institutional investors.

Lee Miglin introduced the new concept of “Business Parks,” combining both office and warehouse facilities in the “SkyHarborBusinessPark” (formerly a private airport in Northbrook, Illinois).  Always at the leading edge of his industry, Lee Miglin introduced new and innovative concepts to Chicagoland’s quickly growing office market and, amidst predominantly single-office building development, introduced the “Office Complex” concept. CommercePlaza, consisting of three identical buildings of 200,000 square feet each, was developed in west suburban Oak Brook, with the three buildings interconnected by underground corridors.

The Miglin-Beitler Company was founded in 1982 and achieved prominence as a company dedicated to high quality and innovative real estate development, leasing, management and tenant services.  The Company received numerous awards such as “Developer of the Year,” “Manager of the Year,” and “Real Estate Achiever of the Year.”  Miglin-Beitler also became the first firm in Chicago to target a new market segment and formed a “Public Buildings Management Company,” whose first assignment was the “Daley Center” in downtown Chicago, a one million, four-hundred thousand square foot property consisting of governmental offices and courtrooms. Some of  Miglin-Beitler achievements include the development of the tallest building outside of downtown Chicago — the 31 story Oakbrook Terrace Tower building, a landmark in suburban Oak Brook, Illinois; in downtown Chicago, Madison Plaza, a 45 story one million square foot building having Hyatt Corporation and Hyatt International as the principal tenant; the PaineWebber building, a 50 story one million square foot building with nine international banks as tenants; and the American National Can building on the Kennedy Expressway near O’Hare Airport, as well as many others.

Miglin Properties, LLC, formed in 1998, continues the legacy of Lee Miglin and the dedication to high-quality innovative real estate development, leasing, management and tenant services in commercial, retail, industrial and office space in Chicago and surrounding areas. This depth and breadth of experience allows Miglin Properties to create innovative uses and implement new ideas in the efforts to continue to make Chicago a top-quality city and metropolitan area in which to live. Some additional projects include the conversion of a 110,000 square foot office building into a hotel with a new 65,000 square foot addition (built and connected to the existing building), the conversion of a 90,000 square foot industrial building into a retail complex, a new mixed-use 150,000 square foot building pre-leased, a 160,000 square foot building with a hotel, the development of a 40 acre parcel to a 600,000 square foot office and retail complex and the conversion of an 88,000 square foot building to loft offices, to name a few.
