The Higher Grounds Coffee Bar and Roastery is located in the Village at Grand Traverse Commons, one of the largest historic preservation and adaptive reuse redevelopments in the country.
Located just a mile from downtown Traverse City, Michigan, The Village is a massive renovation of dozens of historic buildings formerly known as the Traverse City State Hospital (previously the Northern Michigan Asylum). Covering 64 acres, The Village features beautiful the Victorian-Italianate architecture of elaborate 100-year-old structures.
With wide open green spaces laced with pedestrian walkways, The Village offers hiking and biking trails over 480 acres of preserved parkland; the Mercato, Building 50's indoor marketplace of shops and eateries; a community garden; a farmers market; and much more.
Our space was formerly the historic hospital's laundry facility, a beautiful and funky high-ceilinged warehouse saturated with natural light. We share this building with Left Foot Charley, Traverse City's only in-town winery and tasting room, at 806 Red Drive.
