Once considered for demolition, a nine-story building that is one of Columbia's oldest and largest for subsidized housing could undergo an $8.5 million renovation and expansion if the County Council approves. Two resolutions due for introduction Tuesday night before the County Council would allow financing through the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development. Harper House, a 100-unit building for low-income residents in the village of Harper's Choice, could get more two-bedroom units, larger one-bedroom apartments, a new activity room and energy-saving features.

Enterprise Homes would like to tear down one of Columbia's oldest subsidized housing buildings and redevelop the site with lower-rise apartments - including some for sale to limited-income families. If the very preliminary concept goes forward, Harper House, a nine-story, 100-unit building near the Harper's Choice Village Center, would be replaced with 110 larger, more modern apartments spread among lower-rise buildings on the same site, at Harper's Farm Road and Cedar Lane. The building, formerly known as Abbott House and completed in 1971, changed names after a $2.2 million renovation done in 1998.

The council voted unanimously to withdraw the measure. Administration officials and council members said an effort to craft amendments that would ease critics' fears about large social events at rural wineries and satisfy farmers who want to begin commercial operations failed to jell in time.
