Kathleen McCarthy on Opportunities in Real Estate

Global Co-Head of Real Estate Kathleen McCarthy discusses how Blackstone is investing before the all-clear sign and where the firm sees the greatest opportunity today.


We are the largest owner of commercial real estate globally, owning and managing assets across every major geography and sector, including logistics, housing, data centers, hospitality, and life science office.


StuyTown-Peter Cooper Village is a high-quality apartment community totaling over 11,200 units in 56 buildings on 80 acres in Manhattan. In collaboration with the City of New York, we preserved 5,000 affordable apartments for 20 years through our acquisition. In 2019, StuyTown completed the installation of the largest private multifamily residential rooftop solar project in the U.S., installing nearly 10,000 solar panels at the property, and became the largest multifamily rental community in the country to receive a LEED Platinum certification.

European Logistics Portfolio

We have capitalized on continued e‑commerce tailwinds and strong logistics fundamentals in Europe by assembling a large logistics portfolio along key strategic distribution corridors. Our portfolio is comprised of high-quality assets located in major logistics hubs in countries such as Germany, France, the U.K. and Spain. The portfolio benefits from robust tenant demand as continued e-commerce growth has driven an increased need for well‑located warehouses across Europe.

The Arch Company

In 2019, we acquired Network Rail’s U.K. commercial property estate, a high-quality portfolio of primarily infill railway arches, concentrated in central London around key transport hubs and launched The Arch Company to manage the portfolio. It is differentiated in its character and function, comprised of 5,300 rental units with diverse uses including last mile logistics and storage, retail, food and beverage, office and leisure. We made a public promise to support tenants and created a Tenants’ Charter, demonstrating our long-term commitment to engage with all tenants and communities in an open and responsive manner and make the arches better places to work, build and run businesses.


Blackstone acquired BioMed Realty Trust, a publicly traded life science office REIT, in 2016, based on our belief in the long-term fundamentals of the life sciences sector, particularly in locations with top-tier educational and research institutions. BioMed provides purpose-built facilities to support mission-critical research by leading scientists and institutions and provides companies with campuses that help them attract and retain top talent. The sector continues to benefit from secular tailwinds including an aging population and acceleration in research & development spending. BioMed owns and operates high-quality life science real estate comprising 16 million square feet located in the leading innovation markets throughout the U.S. and U.K.[1]

India Office

We are one of the largest owners of Class A office space in India, with a portfolio spanning 56 million square feet across key office markets and IT hubs. Since our first investment in 2011, we have built a portfolio that provides high-quality facilities and infrastructure to ensure a comfortable and enriching environment for our largely multinational tenants. Given employers’ increasing demand for highly-skilled workers, we believe this sector is especially poised for growth in the coming years.

Great Wolf Resorts

Great Wolf Resorts is a premier owner and operator of family-oriented entertainment resorts with locations across the US. Travel and leisure is one of Blackstone’s highest-conviction themes, and Great Wolf Resorts’ continued popularity shows the strength in consumer demand for travel experiences. Blackstone is bringing its industry expertise and resources to Great Wolf to develop additional resorts, improve its existing properties, and find new ways to engage with customers. Great Wolf Resorts is also participating in Blackstone’s Career Pathways™ program, which aims to foster economic mobility for historically underrepresented talent and support diversity efforts across our portfolio.

While Blackstone believes ESG factors can enhance long-term value, Blackstone does not pursue an ESG-based investment strategy or limit its investments to those that meet specific ESG criteria or standards, except with respect to products or strategies that are explicitly designated as doing so in their offering documents or other applicable governing documents. Any such considerations do not qualify Blackstone’s objectives to maximize risk-adjusted returns.
