New permit applications were filed for a hotel project in the Garment District. The building is being designed by Gene Kaufman.

The 21-story tower, which will be located at 333 West 38th Street, is set to house 79 rooms. Those units will be spread across 28,000 square feet in the hotel. According to the plans, an average room in the building will be roughly 350 square feet in size, and every level up to the 18th floor will have four rooms.

According to New York YIMBY, the ground level, where the lobby is located, will also have two units. Floors 19 through 21 will house three units.

Optima Real Estate is developing the project. When the the developer bought the lot in 2011 for $4.6 million, the site housed a five-story tenement building, which was demolished last year. [NY YIMBY] — Claire Moses
