Mayflower Business Group is moving forward with its plans to build a new hotel in the Garment District, about a year after the firm had filed plans for another hotel a few blocks way.

The Wei Hong Hu-led firm pre-filed an application with the city’s Buildings Department to construct a 25-story, nearly 46,000-square-foot hotel at 319 West 35th Street. The new project will have 166 rooms, filings show.

Hu did not immediately return a request for comment.

The firm picked up the two five-story rentals buildings at the site, sandwiched between Eighth and Ninth Avenues, in 2016 for $28 million.

The filing comes a little over a year after Mayflower put in an application to build a 29-story, 65-key hotel at 58 West 39th Street.

Peter Poon is the architect of record for both developments.
