Removing Air Return Duct

I am in the process of removing a wall between my kitchen and dining room. There is a return vent in the wall and I am not sure where I should relocate it, or should I remove it altogether.

I have two options..... I think. One would be to close it up in the dining room and open it into the finished off basement, which has no returns right now. If I move it to the basement it would leave me with one return for about 400 square feet. Or I could move it to the adjoining wall, which would be much more difficult. Then I would have two returns in that 400 square feet. None the less I realize I need the return air for the system to function properly, but does it matter whether it comes from the finished basement or the kitchen/dining room.

Thanks for any advice in advance.

This might help the home if you put it down there. as you say its all finished off down there.Make sure you let it have the same SQ " or more down there.
