Another day, another Long Island City hotel from Sam Chang.

The developer filed permits with the city’s Department of Buildings on Monday for a 14-story hotel with 282 rooms. The project at 52-02 Van Dam Street would span about 82,000 square feet and replace a pair of industrial buildings.

This is the latest of many hotels Chang’s McSam Hotel Group is planning for the neighborhood. The company is also building a 324-key hotel nearby at 38-39 9th Street and a 142-key hotel at 38-04 11th Street.

Architect Gene Kaufman is designing Chang’s new project, continuing their long partnership. They are also working together on a 12-story hotel at 111 East 24th Street and a 45-story tower at 142 West 24th Street.

Representatives from Chang’s company did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

An analysis last year by The Real Deal found that Long Island City was the most popular neighborhood in the outer boroughs for hotels, with 45 new projects planned since 2010.
