Horizon Industrial Parks is a portfolio of logistics parks owned and managed by Blackstone Real Estate Fund and will support its rapidly expanding logistics footprint in India, Blackstone said in a statement on Friday.

The platform is one of the largest portfolios of its kind and comprises warehousing and industrial parks in major cities.
