Queens developer Pride Hospitality Group plans to build a 283-key hotel in Downtown Jamaica, its second hotel planned for the neighborhood.

The developer applied to build an 18-story, 110,000-square-foot hotel at 149-03 Archer Avenue, three blocks from a Long Island Rail Road station, according to records filed with the Department of Buildings Friday.

The company bought the site in March for $5.3 million, and last month filed plans for a 48-room hotel nearby on 95th Avenue. Pride owner Jai Patel could not be immediately reached for comment.

Queens has led the outer-boroughs in hotel development in recent years, opening 16 properties since 2012. Manhattan opened 64 hotels during that time, and Brooklyn counted 4.

The Bloomberg administration rezoned 368 blocks in Downtown Jamaica in 2007, but development was slow to pick up following the recession. A number of big developments are now in the works, particularly hotels that look to cash in on the passengers traveling in and out of JFK Airport, which is connected to Jamaica by the Air Train.

The Archer Avenue site sits just a short walk from the busy intersection with Sutphin Avenue at the transit hub, where BRP Companies is planning to build a pair of apartment buildings with 580 units.

On the southern side of the train tracks, Able Management is planning a 240-room Hilton Garden Inn.
