PHOENIX - The owners of a home designed by famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright have postponed plans to redevelop the Phoenix property.
Officials with 8081 Meridian LLC say they instead are looking for a buyer to preserve it.
The Arizona Republic reports that no offers have been made yet.
Meridian bought the property earlier this year for $1.8 million. The Wright family initially sold it for $2.8 million in 2009.
Meridian managing partner John Hoffman says if a buyer isn't found by Aug. 21, the company will move forward with development plans that include splitting up the 2.5-acre property.
The Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy is searching internationally to find a buyer.
Wright built the early 1950s home for his son. It's known for its spiral plan and elevated living quarters.
