There are plans to turn a two-story auto repair shop in Long Island City into a hotel and medical office space.

Long Island City Development Group has filed plans to build a 12-story, mixed-use building in the neighborhood.

Currently a two-story auto repair shop, developers want to turn 38-24 32nd St. in Long Island City into a 90-room hotel with medical office space on the ground and third floors, according to plans filed with the department of buildings.

The hotel would measure 34,581 square feet while the medical offices would take up 8,154 square feet. Currently, the auto repair shop is 6,873 square feet. There would also be a parking garage on the second floor. Amenities would include a lobby, business center and bar, The Real Deal first reported.

The Dutch Kills neighborhood in Long Island City consists of mostly low-rise buildings that house manufacturers. Developers have expressed interest in the area, which borders Long Island City. A seven-story condo with 88 units and 78 parking spaces is planned for 37-21 32nd St.

The city is also looking to upzone a part of that neighborhood so that developers can build more affordable housing in the area. Residents pushed back on the idea in a meeting with representatives from the City Planning Commission in February.
