A developer has filed permits to replace a home that has stood in Kew Gardens for over a century with a 7-story residential building.
The plan calls for the construction of a 19-unit apartment building at 116-17 Grosvenor Lane. A 3-story tudor home was built on the property in 1899.
Grosvenor Realty Group, the development company, purchased the property in September for $1.35 million. The company filed permits to demolish the house in December.
The new structure will consist of 13,960 square feet of residential space and be 65 feet tall.
The building will feature a first floor residential lobby, as well as a laundry room and bicycle parking room in the cellar.
The property is about three blocks from the Kew Gardens Train Station, two blocks from Forest Park and six blocks from the 121 St/Jamaica Ave. (J) subway station.
