A 31-story Fairfield Inn hotel is on pace to open next year at 161 Front Street near the South Street Seaport.

Peter Poon Architects is behind the 230-foot-tall property, according to recent filings with the Department of Buildings, and it’s separate from SHoP Architects’ design for a 50-story hotel-condominium tower and boat marina in the area.

Construction began on the lot, which sits a block from the South Street Seaport historic district, back in 2011, as previously reported. Back then, the Fairfield hotel, a division of the Marriott brand, was expected to open this year. [Curbed]Mark Maurer
