Z & K Realty Developers is planning to construct a 162,4370-square-foot commercial building in Brooklyn’s Homecrest neighborhood, city records indicate.

Z & K, led by Alex Klein and Yi Han, are proposing construction of a 10-story building at 1702 East 9th Street. Daniel Goldner Architects is designing the building. The site currently houses a one-story, 8,000-square-foot auto body shop.

The project calls for 147 hotel rooms, a synagogue and an eating and drinking establishment.

The Queens-based developer bought the property in February for $5.9 million, according to city records. That transaction also included the adjacent 815 Kings Highway, a 39,000-square-foot commercial building. Earlier this fall, the developer applied for a permit to demolish both structures.

Representatives from Z & K and Daniel Goldner Architects were not immediately available for comment.

Plans for the new building also include a 261-car parking garage to accompany the new building. The project is pending zoning approval from the city.
