Located on Farrell Street just off of Shelburne Road, Grand Way Commons offers 91 one- and two-bedroom apartments. Part of the first floor is home to the main offices of Cathedral Square,  HomeShare Vermont, the United Way of Northwest Vermont and the UVM Home Health & Hospice’s Adult Day Program. The day program is available to the public as well as to residents at Grand Way, providing a place for older adults with physical or mental limitations to socialize, recreate and participate in activities in a safe and supervised setting.

There is a commercial kitchen and a kitchen/dining/community room and lounge for residents on the first floor. Supermarkets, pharmacies, eateries and retail stores are located just across the street.

Grand Way is a SASH® location, with a full-time SASH coordinator and part-time wellness nurse. It offers tax-credit and subsidized apartments and, like all Cathedral Square communities, accepts Section 8 vouchers for apartments that are not already subsidized.
