A New Jersey-based developer plans to build a six-story hotel in East Williamsburg.

Nehalkumar Gandhi filed a permit application Friday for a 92-key hotel for for 187 Cook Street,Between White Street and Bushwick Avenue. The hotel will span a little over 26,000 square feet, according to documents filed with the city’s Department of Buildings. The brand of the hotel was not immediately clear.

In May 2016, New York YIMBY reported that the Loketch Group and Joyland Group planned to build 25,565-square feet of office and warehouse space and a 7,900-square-foot event hall on the property. But according to documents filed with the city’s Department of Finance, Cook Equities took over a 99-ground lease from the Loketch Group in September of that year for $800,000.

Gandhi and representatives for Loketch didn’t immediately return calls seeking comment.

In July, Gandhi filed plans for a 66-key hotel in the Bronx. He’s filed plans for at least nine other hotels in the past two years, records show.
