As hotels continue to sprout in Long Island City and Astoria, another is planned for Ravenswood, with 150 rooms spanning seven stories.
The hotel will sit at 38-04 11th Street, just behind the Ravenswood Generating Station, currently occupied by a dilapidated, one-story former auto shop.
Construction plans were filed Monday with the Department of Buildings.
A conference room, gym, rooftop terrace and restaurant are all planned for the hotel. Gradient Architecture Studio is behind the design.
A draft rendering of the hotel is posted on Gradient’s website, although principal Ben Krone noted that plans are still in flux and an official rendering has not yet been released.
Developer Alec Shtromandel declined to comment on the project for this story.
