Blackstone's (BX) a buyer of single-family property, but plans a wave of other real estate sales, and its Brixmor Property Group could be among the first. Blackstone is considering an IPO of the unit - the 2nd largest owner of U.S. community and neighborhood shopping centers - reports Bloomberg. The biggest clue is the hiring of Mike Pappagallo from Kimco as President and CFO, a job he starts today.
