IKEA is now on Fifth Avenue

Ingka Investments, the investments arm of Ingka Group, which owns the majority of IKEA stores worldwide, announced today a real estate investment on New York City's iconic Fifth Avenue. The investment in 570 Fifth Avenue will be part of the real estate portfolio of Ingka Investments and marks a significant step in Ingka Group's long-term strategy to enhance its city centre retail presence. The new Class-A retail and office tower is being developed by Extell Development Company, one of the nation's premier development firms. The building is scheduled for tenant delivery in 2028.

This strategic alliance between two industry leaders marks the largest development on Fifth Avenue in more than 60 years. Located at the intersection of the Plaza and Grand Central Districts, 570 Fifth Avenue will be a 1,000,000-square-foot mixed-use commercial building, with an outstanding address, exceptional access to transportation, world-class architecture, and next level services and amenities. A new IKEA customer meeting point will be located in the building's prime retail space of 80,000 sq ft arranged over two large cellar levels with a corner entrance on Fifth Avenue. With a focus on sustainability and wellness, the tower is targeting a minimum LEED Gold certification and will exemplify high sustainability standards and low carbon operation principles.

Peter van der Poel, Managing Director of Ingka Investments, says, 'We are excited to share the news of this major investment that boosts our growth strategy across the U.S., a vital market for Ingka Group. Investing in Fifth Avenue goes beyond just growing our footprint; it's about changing the way we engage with consumers and playing a part in creating strong, sustainable economies and business communities.'

The investment is another step in Ingka Group's strategy to evolve its retail operations by adapting to urban growth and changing consumer shopping preferences. This initiative involves introducing innovative retail formats in city centres, enhancing accessibility and convenience for customers. Located just a three-minute walk from Grand Central Station and Bryant Park, the new development benefits from unmatched accessibility, tapping into the vibrant energy of Manhattan.
