A Las Vegas-based company has sold a 158,000-square-foot warehouse in Teterboro for an undisclosed amount, the broker in the deal said Tuesday.

Global Experience Specialists Inc., a division of Viad Corp., sold the class B light industrial property at 125 North St. to Forsgate Industrial Properties LP of Jamesburg, according to Jones Lange LaSalle, which represented Forsgate.

The broker declined to reveal the sale price, and the deed hasn't been recorded yet in the Bergen County Clerk's Office.

Forsgate is a private real estate developer and investor that owns and manages 10 million square feet of industrial buildings.

Its partners are Alex Klatskin and Steve Seiden, says CoStar, which supplies commercial real estate data, while GES' officers include Paul Dykstra and Kevin Rabbitt.

The property, built in 1950, was known as the Wella Industrial Facility. It is a 13.6-acre site on the corner of North and Huyler streets immediately off Exit 65 of Route 80. Teterboro assessed the property at $10.1 million last year, according to CoStar.

Jones Lang LaSalle's managing director David Knee and Senior Vice President Blake Chroman represented Forsgate in the off-market transaction.

The seller was represented by its in-house real estate team.

The seller, GES, is remaining in the building as a short-term tenant after the sale, according to Jones Lang LaSalle.
