A Gene Kaufman-designed nine-story residential project in Long Island City might undergo changes.

While a permit application to construct the new building had been filed and excavation had started at 27-07 43rd Avenue in the quickly developing Court Square neighborhood, new filings are now up, this time for a hotel project, according to New York YIMBY.

The new permit application calls for 108 hotel rooms across 50,000 square feet of commercial space. The building will still be nine floors. Flushing-based firm Michael Kang Architect filed the new application.

According to YIMBY, the site’s new developer — Prakash Patel, under the moniker 27-07 43rd Ave. LLC — told the website that a hotel could rise at the location but that no final decision had been made. [NY YIMBY] — Claire Moses
