Weihong Hu’s Mayflower Business Group plans to build a 24-story hotel in the Garment District.

The developer on Monday filed plans for a 170-key hotel at 317 West 35th Street, according to a permit application filed with the city’s Department of Buildings. The hotel, designed by Peter Poon Architects, will span 58,754 square feet and reach 250 feet tall. The architecture firm has designed several hotels, including the nearby Archer Hotel at 45 West 38th Street, as well as the Wingate Inn by Wyndham at 235 West 35th Street.

A representative for the firm was not immediately able to provide additional information on the project.

Mayflower, which is based out of Great Neck, N.Y., purchased the development site in May for $28 million. The city has already approved demolition permits for the two five-story rental buildings on the property. The second through 23rd floors of the new hotel will each feature eight rooms — except the seventh, which will host mechanical equipment — and the 24th floor will have six rooms, according to the permit application.

The developer is also in the process of building a 12-story hotel at 61-27 186th Street in the Fresh Meadows section of Queens.

The new hotel will have considerable competition nearby. Quadrum Global plans to build a 500-key hotel at 351-353 West 38th Street. And Isaac Chetrit TRData LogoTINY and Charles Aini plan to convert a three-story retail building at 1420 Broadway into a hotel that is roughly five times the size of the current building on the property.
