They don't get used for lumber until they are about 75 to 100 years old, so this is when their growth, likely, slows down. Over half of their growth happens within the first ten years of the tree's life, but it will still grow, substantially, until it is not able to sustain itself.

Unfortunately, it will continue to damage foundations and buildings near it. The only way to slow it down will be to kill it. Since it is on its way to maturity, it may be necessary to have a local professional help with this task.

Here is an article that will help you to kill a tree:
