Century-Old Kew Gardens Tudor Faces Demolition

A century-old home in Kew Gardens is facing demolition to make way for development of a seven-story apartment building at the site.

The three-story Tudor style home at 116-17 Grosvenor Lane was built in 1899—one of many homes located in a forest-like setting.

The Grosvenor Realty Group acquired the property in September, 2017 for $1.35 million and has announced plans to demolish the home in December.

The developer is planning to build a 65-foot-tall, seven-story residential building at the site that will feature 19 apartments and a first-floor residential lobby, along with a laundry room and parking in the cellar for an unspecified number of bicycles.

The parcel is located approximately three blocks from the Kew Gardens train station, two blocks from Forest Park and six blocks from the MTA 121st Street-Jamaica Avenue J line station.

The developer has not announced a starting date for the project.
