The Village at Grand Traverse Commons

The Minervini Group welcomes you to The Village at Grand Traverse Commons, where one of the largest, historic preservation and adaptive reuse redevelopments in the country is underway. 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, and previously, the Northern Michigan Asylum. The auspicious location of this 63-acre site, centered in one of the Midwest’s most desirable locations, underscores the unparalleled beauty of magnificent, century-old Victorian-Italianate architecture.

We invite you to come experience The Village Lifestyle, and all that it has to offer: Our pedestrian friendly walkways and expansive lawns, surrounded by an historic arboretum, perfect for a relaxing stroll or picnic…Gorgeous hiking and biking trails along Kid’s Creek and through 480 acres of preserved parkland…The ever changing, art-adorned walls of the Mercato, an expansive indoor marketplace in the Garden Level of Building 50…and a vast array of eclectic shops, unique eateries, and professional services.

Special events and social gatherings are another integral part of life in The Village. From our festivals and farmers market, to artist receptions, concerts and celebrations…The Village is always alive with activity. So, come visit…and bring the family! We’re closer than you think – just one mile from downtown!
