Looking toward the harbor from Little Traverse Bay, the white triangular planes created by the walls and shed roofs of this group of condominiums resemble the lines and masses of boats in a regatta tied at slips in the marina. The tall chimneys mimic the masts. Ward and Roma Walstrom commissioned Begrow of Charlevoix to design the project at the yacht basin and Walstrom's marina for wealthy year-round vacationers. The units are clustered into three groups of from nine to twelve units each. The exteriors are off-white vertically grooved plywood siding with charcoal shingles and black-anodized window and door frames. The condominiums are among the first erected in northern Michigan.
