WASHINGTON, DC – Gables Residential, a leader in multi-family community management and development, has laid the groundwork for one of its newest Washington, D.C. projects, Gables Union Market. Gables Union Market is located in the heart of the Union Market neighborhood, a 45-acre neighborhood filled with shopping, entertainment, dining, nightlife, and more. The community will offer 300 apartment buildings and over 20,000 m² of retail space. EDENs will own the retail area on the ground floor and will bring exciting retail partners to complement the residential component.
The Gables Union Market offers thoughtful amenities such as an infinity pool and sundeck with views of the Capitol and Washington Monument, outdoor dining and a grill, a fire pit, shaded lounge / seating areas, a dog run, a lawn for outdoor activities, and a big screen TV for movies. The interior includes a common room, play area, state-of-the-art fitness center, dog wash, and two unique rooms that complement the Union Market District – a flexible maker space space and a morning / garden space. The amenity space on the second floor includes a conference room, several private breakout rooms, flexible seating areas that can serve as co-working space, a podcast room and two outdoor terraces.
The community will incorporate environmentally friendly building and efficiency features, including an approximately 2,000 SF solar panel array, Energy Star devices, and water sensor installations.
Jorgen Punda, Senior Vice President of Investments at Gables Residential, said, “We are very excited to add another exciting addition to the DC portfolio. Union Market is a vibrant one-stop destination and we look forward to being part of this unique and thriving area. "
