LOWELL -- Officials from the company planning to redevelop the parcel home to the city's oldest building have embraced a revised proposal put forth by the city that would ensure the saving of the historic home built in 1673.

Kazanjian Enterprises, which has proposals before several city boards for the development of 150 Wood St. in the Highlands neighborhood, plans to seek a continuance before the Conservation Commission Wednesday night at 7 to work on the revised plan.

David Gray, general manager for Kazanjian Enterprises, also said he will seek a continuance from the Zoning Board of Appeal's next week. Kazanjian Enterprises' officials expressed interest in pursuing the plan in a meeting with city officials Wednesday morning.

Under the plan Kazanjian Enterprises expects to move forward with, two new commercial buildings would still be built on the site, and the historic Jerathmell Bowers House would remain where it sits now.

Officials from Kazanjian Enterprises told The Sun in a story published Monday that their plan all along was to save the historic home, but they revised their proposal at the request of city officials concerned about the proximity of a driveway on the site to a busy intersection.

Following the publication of the story, city officials reached out to Kazanjian Enterprises with a proposed revised plan that would allow the home to remain in place.

The Bowers House is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is reputed to have had a trap door that provided access to the attic where family members hid during Indian raids.
