"1951 - The David and Gladys Wright House, 5212 Exeter Boulevard, Phoenix AZ.  David Wright was FLW’s son.  Commissioned 1950.  FLW did a 350sf guest house in 1954.  Sold in early 2012 to developers 8081 Meridian Corporation.  While initially promising the house would be preserved, they have backed off that promise.  In July 2012, the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy was awarded a temporary demolition delay while the City of Phoenix decides whether to bestow historic preservation and landmark designation upon the house."  http://www.trianglemodernisthouses.com/wright.htm

"The conservancy found a potential buyer who offered more than $2 million, a tidy $250,000 profit for less than three months of ownership, but it was rejected, Mahoney said." #NYT  http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/2012/10/03/us/ap-us-phoenix-wright-house.html?partner=rss&emc=rss&smid=tw-nytimes
