New Jersey-based importer-exporter Frank Ng is planning to build a 32-story, 203-key hotel at 132 West 28th Street in Chelsea.

Ng filed plans with the Department of Building for a 326-foot tall building at 132 West 28th Street, Real Estate Weekly reported. The proposed building would feature 95,158 square feet of commercial space and 30,086 square feet of residential space, according to the publication.

The building would also feature a hotel lounge bar at the ground floor and a fitness center on the second floor. There will also be a club and conference rooms. The site has 240,000 buildable square feet.

Earlier this year, Isaac Chetrit’s AB & Sons filed a lawsuit against Ng, accusing him of backing out of an agreement to buy a 14-story building at 315 West 35th Street. [REW]Miriam Hall
