Flushing-based development firm Ampiera Group wants to bring a 139-key hotel to Long Island City.

The 16-story building at 38-70 12th Street will rise 162 feet, according to a permit application filed with the Department of Buildings Wednesday.

The ground floor of the new 80,400-square-foot hotel will feature some type of restaurant and an office area, the filing shows.

There will be 10 rooms on the second floor, and 11 on each of the third through 15th floors, according to the filing. Another eating and drinking establishment is planned for the top floor.

My Architect PC is serving as the architect of record. Ampiera declined to comment.

Elsewhere in the neighborhood, the firm, led by Alex Lau, is also building a 36-unit condominium building at 24-12 42nd Road and a 32-unit rental at 42-50 27th Street. Last year, Ampiera purchased a vacant, six-story office building at at 90-75 Sutphin Boulevard in Jamaica for $17.5 million.
