Professional Experience

Todd Cwynar is a Senior Vice President within the Brokerage Services Division of the CBRE Pittsburgh office. Todd works with clients to ensure that CBRE delivers a consistent qualitative and quantitative approach to achieve their real estate ownership objectives.

Since joining CBRE in 2005, Todd has been the Landlord Representative for over four million square feet of office space for various owners in the Pittsburgh Region.  While working on the U. S. Steel Tower, Todd was an integral part of the leasing team that attracted the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center to move their executive and administrative office functions to the building.  The 515,000 square foot lease is one of the largest leases signed in the Central Business District over the past decade.  In 2011, UPMC Health Plan finalized their plans for a 267,000 SF lease at the U. S. Steel Tower.

In 2011, Highwoods Properties purchased the 1,500,000 SF Class “A” trophy property, PPG Place. As a key member of the leasing team, occupancy was increased from, 82% to 95% occupied in a fifteen (15) month time period.

The leasing team of Piatt Place completed the 180,000 square foot Commonwealth of Pittsburgh lease, which was the largest Central Business District lease in  2009.

The 4,600,000 SF Class “A “ trophy property set outlined below, illustrates how a team leasing agency approach can successfully increase overall occupancy.
