Cordia at Grand Traverse Commons is housed in the north end of a magnificently revived, Victorian Italianate building, part of the largest historic preservation project in Michigan history. Originally constructed under the auspices of the renowned Dr. Kirkbride, the Cordia community has thirteen-foot ceilings, soaring windows, southern exposure, views of an arboretum and park, spires, dormers, and grand porches.

These artfully designed spaces include:
- a library and computer center
- a formal dining room
- piano lounge
- fitness center
- an artisan center and classroom for hands-on projects
- TV room with reclined seating
- sixty-seat Theater
- billiards/game areas

- covered porches reminiscent of a grand hotel
- a courtyard featuring a dining patio, fire pit, and gardening areas.
