BENGALURU (Reuters) - Indian warehouse and parks developer IndoSpace on Monday said the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB) will invest $205 million in the company's new real estate fund.

The investment from Canada's biggest pension fund is part of IndoSpace's new fund targeting $600 million in equity commitments.

CPPIB's latest investment in the Indian property developer will take its partnership with the company to over $1 billion in assets, IndoSpace said in a statement.

IndoSpace is a joint venture between the Everstone Group, a Southeast Asia-focussed private equity, and U.S.-based investors GLP and Realterm.
