The Blackstone Group has completed its purchase of World Market Center, downtown Las Vegas’ massive furniture-showroom hall.

The New York investment powerhouse announced Tuesday that it completed its previously announced acquisition of International Market Centers, owner and operator of 12.2 million square feet of home-furnishings showroom space in Las Vegas and High Point, North Carolina.

Terms of the sale, by investment firms Bain Capital and Oaktree Capital Management, were not disclosed.

Fireside Investments partnered with Blackstone on the deal, which was unveiled in July.

World Market Center, on Grand Central Parkway at Bonneville Avenue, spans 5.4 million square feet. It rents year-round showroom space to home-furnishings suppliers and hosts two industry gatherings per year that typically last a week and draw 45,000 attendees each.

It opened in 2005 with one building, expanded in 2007 with a second building and grew again in 2008 with a third, plus a 3,600-car parking garage.
