Prolific hotel developer Nehalkumar Gandhi has his sights set on East New York for his next projects.

Gandhi filed plans with the city’s Department of Buildings on Friday for two new hotels in the neighborhood at 51 and 55 Sheffield Avenue. The hotel at 51 Sheffield will stand eight stories tall with 63 rooms across 18,864 square feet, and the hotel at 55 Sheffield will stand nine stories tall with 70 rooms across 21,073 square feet.

Architect Michael Kang is designing both projects.

Gandhi has filed plans for more than 10 hotels in the past two years, including a 66-key hotel at 1893 Washington Avenue in Tremont, a 47-key hotel at 3466 Webster Avenue in Norwood and a 72-key hotel at 1668 Eastern Parkway in Crown Heights.

The City Council passed a rezoning of East New York in 2016, and multiple developers have since announced plans for affordable housing projects in the neighborhood. Phipps Houses is working on a 403-unit development at 3301 Atlantic Avenue, and Alan Bell’s B&B Urban is working on a 100-unit development at 315 Linwood Street.
