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.

  1. Please pardon me for using your space: Wore with development on a seven-story by its residential.

  2. These are wooden frame homes that are worth close to $1 million dollars not dilapidated properties! Stop talking about our communities like they’re the boondocks. This is like you said an affluent area, not Wisconsin where probably most of your readers are from!

    “…area known for historic wood-frame Colonial/Tudor houses…” And now it will get a piece of crap that’s totally out of place.

    Every day I’m thankful I live in a Landmarked District.

  4. Is this next to the empty lot?

    Also, about 8 blocks to the E and F train.

  6. The quote should read “The neighborhood WAS FORMERLY known for historic wood-frame Colonial/Tudor houses and pre-war co-ops…………..soon a 65 foot tall, seven story glass and masonry box will be dumped upon it, forever destroying the formerly quaint and historic neighborhood. It will certainly become a prime example of what appalling zoning and total disregard for the existing scale and character of the neighborhood can produce at the hands of a clueless developer.

  7. Our neighborhood is going to crap one ugly building at a time. No parking. Spots for 10 bikes (for how many apartments?). Dilapidated?? Oh please.
