Real estate entrepreneur launches luxury hospitality company

Alex Ohebshalom creates Flâneur Hospitality to develop iconic hotels that redefine and exemplify guest experience and personalization

Flâneur Hospitality, an innovative luxury hospitality company, has been formed by accomplished real estate entrepreneur Alex Ohebshalom to develop, own, and operate iconic hotels that offer a singular aesthetic and ambiance, personalization, and sensibility.

“The essence of the flâneur has resonated with me for quite some time, and I am deeply passionate about bringing this enchanting and enriching concept to life through hotels where guests feel at home in the home they wish they had,” said Ohebshalom, founder and CEO of Flâneur Hospitality.

Deriving inspiration from the literary tradition of the flâneur, an observer for whom time slows delighting in “the gastronomy of the eye,” Flâneur Hospitality is focused on creating and curating evocative and impassioned design, amenities, and personalized service, all intuitively fashioned to engender a sense of delight, discovery, and playfulness that is all too elusive in the speed of the Information Age and in luxury hospitality today.  Familiar and intimate, and imbued with imagination and wonder, the Flâneur Hospitality ethos will appeal to travelers seeking to escape the homogeny of traditional luxury hospitality.

For its inaugural project, Flâneur Hospitality has been engaged by Cosmic Realty Partners LLC, in which Ohebshalom is a principal, to develop a 155-guestroom luxury hotel, scheduled to open in the fall of 2019, on Fifth Avenue in the NoMad district in New York City.  The company is also evaluating hotel development opportunities in markets including London, Los Angeles, Marrakesh, Miami, Paris, and Tokyo.
