“Liberty’s logistics assets are highly complementary to our U.S. portfolio and this acquisition increases our holdings and growth potential in several key markets,” said Prologis Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Hamid Moghadam. “The strategic fit between the portfolios allows us to capture immediate cost and long-term revenue synergies.”

Prologis plans to sell about $3.5 billion worth of assets, including $2.8 billion of “non-strategic” logistics properties and $700 million of office properties, according to a statement.
