Ozone Park, Queens-based developer New Generation Development filed plans yesterday to bring a 13-story hotel to Long Island City.

The 188-foot-tall property at 37-10 24th Street would hold nearly 46,000 square feet of space. There would be 122 hotel rooms, a restaurant and bar. Gurpal Cheema, who runs the development firm, razed the one-story warehouse on the site last year.

For years, industrial laundry plant Jung Sun Laundry Corporation occupied the site, providing cleaning services to nearby hospitals and eateries, BuzzBuzzHome reported.

Last year, Sina Mahfar of SMA Equities filed plans to develop a 12-story, 87-unit project at the nearby 41-18th 24th Street, as previously reported. [BuzzBuzzHome]Mark Maurer
