A new Peter Poon-designed hotel is coming to Chelsea. The 21-story hotel will rise at 132 West 27th Street, which an LLC linked with Upper Manhattan-based Artimus Construction purchased for $35 million in July, as The Real Deal reported.

The 124,934-square-foot hotel will include 313 rooms, according to a plan exam application filed December 23rd, BuzzBuzzHome said.

It’s been a busy few months for Poon. His firm is also behind a 31-story Fairfield Inn hotel set to open next year at 161 Front Street, near the South Street Seaport, and in October he was tapped to design a six-story commercial building in Chinatown, at 107 East Broadway. [BBH]Hiten Samtani
