A hotel with 194 rooms is on its way to Coney Island.

The seven-story project from developer Gal Horowitz would rise at 2201 Neptune Avenue and span 95,450 square feet, according to plans filed on Monday with the Department of Buildings. The building would be divided up into 81,582 square feet of commercial space and 13,968 square feet of community space, and it would replace a one-story public facility currently on the site.

The company that filed the hotel plans — 2201 Neptune Ave LLC — does not own the property yet. It has belonged to Edward Kopelowitz since 1986.

Other Coney Island projects include developer John Catsimatidis’ Ocean Dreams development at 3514 Surf Avenue and a 20-story building with 208 units from iStar at 2006 Surf Avenue.
