Another day, another limited service hotel permit filing in Manhattan’s Garment District.

The latest permit filing for such a structure is for 337 West 36th Street, where a slim, 18-story hotel tower is planned for the north side of the street, between Eighth and Ninth Avenues.

The owner is listed on the permit as Dun Zhang, but prolific skinny limited service builder Sam Chang, of the McSam Group, told The Real Deal that Zhang and others are his partners in the building. Last week a construction worker was crushed to death at another McSam project on an adjacent lot, facing the rear of 337 West 36th Street, at 324 West 37th Street.

The hotel will have 72 rooms, per the permit filing, spread over nearly 25,000 square feet of space, rising on a narrow 25-foot lot, in place of a four-story brick building.

Permits list the architect as Flushing-based Cheng-Yang Lee of Atelier CS. The location is tourist-friendly and the design will surely be low cost.
