Mandarin Oriental Residences
Fifth Avenue

Located on world famous 5th Avenue, in the heart of luxury retail and highest end hotels in the country, Mandarin Oriental at 685 5th Avenue presents a once in a lifetime opportunity to bring a 5 star hotel brand to this most prestigious location.

The intention is to add five floors to this existing 11,700 SF, 20 story office building and convert the upper floors from 5th floor and up into 80 world class units, containing unparalleled amenities and services managed by the Mandarin Oriental luxury brand.

These fully furnished yet affordable units accommodated one’s pied-a-terre living needs, of which half had their own private outdoor terraces.

The units ranged from 600 to 2,600 sqft, and the amenities included a restaurant, room service, concierge and spa services, a gym, and a rooftop pool.

80 units had exclusive access to a private dining restaurant and spa, as well as gym facilities, including an unprecedented exterior rooftop pool with Central Park views.

The project was meticulously designed by the award-winning British firm, March & White.

In 2021, BLG sold its interests and no longer has a management role in Mandarin Oriental Residences Fifth Avenue, while retaining its share in any future profits derived from Mandarin Oriental Residences Fifth Avenue.
