The site of the project dubbed the Grand Traverse Town Center is located across the road from the tribe’s Grand Traverse Resort & Spa, a 900-acre property, and about three miles west of the band’s Turtle Creek Casino & Hotel.

The Grand Traverse Band is the fifth group to invest in the town center, also referred to as The Village at Grand Traverse, said Jay Zollinger, Acme Township Supervisor to 9&10 News.
