711 Fifth Avenue is located at the center of one of the most exclusive commercial and retail corridors in the world within the Plaza District, a location synonymous with wealth and luxury. Originally designed by Bethlehem Engineering Corporation and completed in 1927, the 340,000-square-foot building was presented with a design award by the Fifth Avenue Association for its elegance and beauty.

One of only 20 boutique office buildings along Fifth Avenue, 711 Fifth Avenue has served as headquarters to notable corporations including NBC, Columbia Pictures, and Coca-Cola. The building’s 56,000-square-foot retail and restaurant space has attracted destination retailers and restaurants, such as La Côte Basque, the famed Le Pavillon, and Ralph Lauren. The building is also home to Ralph Lauren’s renowned restaurant, Polo Bar and the recently announced CORE:NYC.

SHVO acquired the building in September 2019 and has reimagined 711 Fifth Avenue under the direction of a world-renowned design architect Peter Marino. The lobby was revitalized with an emphatic hospitality sensibility featuring tailored artisanal finishes that reinforce a signature identity and ambiance with curated art and collector grade furniture. Sophisticated infrastructure upgrades augment a contemporary and seamless tenant experience.

The Polo Bar is inspired by classic New York establishments, and Ralph Lauren’s love for gathering around the table with family and friends. The Polo Bar offers a casual yet refined setting for food and drink in the heart of Manhattan. The waitstaff is outfitted in custom Ralph Lauren grey flannel trousers, leather wingtips, and silk repp ties. The design, from the saddle leather accents and equestrian art to the exterior’s Henry Koehler polo match–inspired mural, pays homage to the distinguished sporting lifestyle long synonymous with the Ralph Lauren brand. The American cuisine is inspired by Ralph Lauren’s personal favorites: from chopped salad and crab cakes to a corned beef sandwich, steak, and signature Polo Bar burger.
