Kislak Commercial announced on Monday the recent sale of a 14,000 square foot industrial building in Montclair for $2.1 million.

This was a first transaction for Kislak with seller and buyer in their exclusive representation of the property.

“154 Pine St. was a unique former industrial property with parking in a popular mixed-use section of Montclair. The property has attracted interest from a wide range of investors, owner-users and developers, with multiple offers being considered. The tremendous activity being generated around this property reflects the current state of the New Jersey industrial market,” Wisniewski said.

“The Becker Organization and Greenwood Development were the ideal buyer for this property due to their years of experience in Montclair working on similar assets,” added Gianis.

Located at 154-162 Pine Street, the asset is a one-story brick building with three cargo doors and drive-through access; 17 foot ceilings with suspended ceiling grids; fluorescent lighting; and approximately 5,000 square feet of parking in a fenced, gated, paved lot adjoining the building.
