Japan’s Toyoko Inn is moving ahead with plans for a massive hotel in Long Island City — its first in the U.S. — after initially toying with the idea in 2010.

The hotel chain filed plans Tuesday to build a 50-story, 261,000-square-foot hotel at 24-09 Jackson Avenue, according to a permit application.

The proposed building will hold 1,260 hotel rooms. Hotel Architect DPC is the architect of record, according to the filing.

The development site is bound by 23rd street and 45th Avenue and is made up of six separate parcels of land. The company paid a total of $18 million for it in 2007. In 2010, the company announced it was planning to open a 640-room hotel in Queens, which has yet to come to fruition.

Toyoko Inn is an economy hotel chain, with more than 200 operations in Japan, Korea and Cambodia. It also has hotels scheduled to open in Germany and the Philippines. According to the company’s website, there are no other Toyoko Inns slated to open in the U.S.

Earlier this year, Flushing-based developer Chris Jiashu Xu filed plans for a 79-story residential tower in Long Island City.

Neither a representative for Toyoko Inn or Hotel Architect DCP were immediately available for comment.
