WASHINGTON, DC - Gables Residential, a leader in the management and development of multifamily apartment communities, has broken ground on one of its newest projects in Washington, D.C, Gables Union Market. Gables Union Market is in the heart of the Union Market district, which is a 45-acre district for shopping, entertainment, restaurants, nightlife and more. The community will offer 300 apartment homes and over 20,000 sq. ft. of retail space. EDENs will own the ground floor retail and will bring exciting retail partners to complement the residential component.
Gables Union Market will have thoughtfully-designed amenities such as an infinity-edge pool and sundeck that will take advantage of views of the Capitol and Washington monument, outdoor dining with barbeque grills, a fire pit, shaded lounge/seating areas, a dog run, an outdoor activity lawn and a big screen TV for movies. The indoor amenities will include a community room, game area, state-of-the-art fitness center, a dog wash and two unique spaces to complement the Union Market District – a flexible maker space room and a morning/garden room. The second-floor amenity space includes a conference room, several private breakout rooms, flexible seating areas that can double as co-working space, a podcast room and two outdoor terraces.
The community will incorporate green building and efficiency features including an approximately 2,000 SF solar panel array, energy star appliances and water sense plumbing fixtures.
Jorgen Punda, Senior Vice President of Investments at Gables Residential stated, “We are thrilled to be adding another exciting addition to the DC portfolio. Union Market is a lively one-stop destination, and we look forward to being a part of this unique and thriving neighborhood.”
