The Village at Grand Traverse Commons

The Village at Grand Traverse Commons is one of the largest historic preservation and adaptive reuse redevelopments in the country. A beautiful solution to urban sprawl, The Village is the unique renovation of dozens of historic buildings formerly known as the Traverse City State Hospital. The Grand Traverse Commons is located just south of downtown Traverse City and Crooked Tree Arts Center.
