A resort project being built on the waterfront in Midland is attracting Canadian and U.S. homeowners who enjoy boating and the leisurely lifestyle that goes with living near water.

The community of Marina Park Resort Condominiums will include about 300 homes, according to Jonathan Weizel, the architect, project manager and sales representative for the site. "There are about 61 detached bungalows, 46 townhouses and a condo building with about 193 units.

"Many buyers are boaters because we are right next to the sailing club and marina," Mr. Weizel says. "They come from all over North America . . . There are many Americans who have their boats up here for the summer. Other buyers are local residents, and some are [people]from the Greater Toronto Area who are looking for cottage-type property."

The community is built on about 26 acres along the waterfront. Bordered by a park and lined with pedestrian walkways, it is four blocks from downtown Midland.

"There's a view of the bay, and all the amenities of living in a small town. This is not remote cottage property," Mr. Weizel says.

He adds that there also will be a 10,000-square-foot community centre featuring an indoor pool, restaurant, a place for live dancing, a hair salon and a spa.

Closing dates are scheduled for the spring of 2006.
