The busiest hotel market in the outer boroughs is about to get a little more crowded.

Developer Surjeet Kaur is planning an eight-story hotel with 95 rooms in Long Island City at 23-15 39th Avenue, according to plans filed with the Department of Buildings on Thursday. The building will replace a one-story home.

Kaur also owns 10-74 Beach 22nd Street in Far Rockaway, where the developer filed plans in 2016 for a two-story hotel with 72 rooms.

Kaur did not respond to a request for comment.

A November analysis by The Real Deal found that Long Island City was by far the most popular neighborhood for hotels in the outer boroughs, with 45 projects planned for the neighborhood dating back to 2010. Jamaica was in second place with 26 projects.

Developer Teddy Li filed plans in April for a 116-key hotel in the neighborhood at 38-59 11th Street,  and Lightstone Group recently purchased the Hilton Garden Inn at 29-21 41st Avenue for $60 million.
