See it soon, while there’s still time.

A beautiful yellow Victorian house stands at 2068 E. 14th St. in Homecrest. A huge circular sun porch topped by a turret makes it especially eye-catching.

But soon the wrecking ball will be swinging.

The new owner of the house plans to build a three-story, 46-foot-tall commercial building with a community facility, city Buildings Department records indicate.

The department has approved the owner’s applications for demolition permits for the two-story house and its one-story garage.

The owner that’s planning to do away with the fine old Victorian is an LLC with Ann Y. Long as managing member — which paid $1.228 million for it in March, city Finance Department records indicate.
