Prologis Inc., the giant global warehouse owner, unveiled a roughly $24 billion all-stock offer to acquire Duke Realty Corp., taking its bid public after months of private pushback from the Indianapolis-based real estate investment trust. 

The proposal values Duke at $61.68 a share, a 29% premium to its closing price on May 9, according to a letter from Prologis Chief Executive Officer Hamid Moghadam to Duke made public on Tuesday. Duke investors would own 19% of the combined company.
