Permits have been filed for a seven-story residential building at 116-17 Grosvenor Lane in Kew Gardens, Queens. The neighborhood is a small affluent area known for historic wood-frame Colonial/Tudor houses and pre-war co-ops. It was one of seven garden communities in Queens. The site is five blocks away from the Kew Gardens train station, serviced by the LIRR. Nine blocks away is the 121st Street subway station, serviced by the J and Z trains. Steven Li of Grosvenor Realty Group LLC is listed as behind the applications.
The 65-foot tall structure will yield 17,180 square feet, with 13,960 square feet dedicated to residential use. 19 apartments will be created, averaging 735 square feet apiece, indicating rentals. Residents will have access to a lobby, laundry, and parking for 10 bicycles.
Tan Architects will be responsible for the design.
Demolition permits for the dilapidated three-story structure were filed in December 2017. The estimated completion date has not been announced.
