The development of Upper Rock District has transformed previously commercial and brownfield land into a vibrant residential destination. Ideally situated between the Metro, I-270, the ICC and I-495, Gables Upper Rock makes up two multifamily buildings within a larger, walkable, connected community.

G+P worked with JBG Companies and DPZ to design Gables Upper Rock to provide residents with abundant indoor and outdoor amenities in a New Urbanist setting. Following the principles of walkability, connectivity, diversity of housing types, and inclusion of mixed-use components, the two buildings face the heart of the Upper Rock District, forming four landscaped private resident courtyards. A public splash park and plaza between the buildings created a pleasant public space for residents to enjoy.

Grimm + Parker’s experienced designers embraced and developed the principles set forth in the project’s master plan as they developed the schematic design for the residential buildings, parking structures and outdoor spaces, producing a cohesive and richly‐layered mixed‐use community.
