Z/K Hospitality is a New York-based owner, developer and manager of unique lodging properties. Founded in 2010 by Alessandro Zampedri and Sanford Kunkel - the intention is to create authentic lodging experiences and complimentary food and beverage programs - with a focus on historic properties in major US markets. We believe the core competency of Z/K lies within the vision to merge conventional hospitality norms and the rapidly shifting values of modern consumers.
Our first project at 220 Bowery in New York City - houses both The Bowery House and Pearl & Ash - in a historic SoHo property that was originally built as the Prince Hotel in 1927. Our second project, currently underway, is the transformation of a mid-century motel at 23033 Pacific Coast Highway into the Surfrider Malibu - located directly across the street from the majestic Malibu Pier.
Z/K Hospitality is actively looking into expansion options in other culturally-rich and historic neighborhoods on both the East and West coasts.
