A developer plans to demolish a century-old Kew Gardens home and replace it with a multi-family building.

A demolition permit was filed on Dec. 14 with the Dept. of Buildings to bulldoze 116-17 Grosvenor Lane, a 3-story single family home that was built in 1899.

Steven Li, the owner of Grosvenor Realty Group LLC, said that that he still hasn’t determined what will be built to replace it. No building plans have been filed.

“It’ll probably be a multi-unit family home,” Li said. “We don’t know how big at this point.”

Li’s company purchased the property on Sept. 11 for $1,350,000.
