CLEVELAND —Forest City Enterprises Inc. and QIC Global Real Estate have teamed up on a major US retail portfolio valued at over $2.05 billion. The real estate arm of government-owned Queensland Investment Corp. will acquire a 49% equity interest in the eight-asset portfolio for $435.6 million in cash.
