"The age old adage of location, location, location has made Gables Upper Rock an immediate success. Our location, at the intersection of Shady Grove Road and I-270 in Rockville puts the Metro, the Beltway, Rockville Pike, and the ICC all within 5 minutes of the community. We are thrilled with how well Gables Upper Rock has been received by the community. All of Gables’ new communities are environmentally conscious, quality home environments that we plan on owning and operating for a long time.” states Jorgen Punda, Regional Vice President of Investments.

“Our community is almost completely leased after only 8 months. Due to this success, we decided to immediately move to the next phase which will open in early 2014, and will offer even more amenities to our residents, including a second pool and fitness center, social spaces, and a splash park,” continued Punda. “We also decided to celebrate by inviting the community to share in our success”, Punda added.

We talked to some of the newest residents at Gables Upper Rock and here is what they had to say:
"When my company told me they were transferring my job from Atlanta to DC, I was so nervous about surviving the winter! My co-worker told me about Gables Upper Rock, and since everyone knows Gables in Atlanta, I decided to check it out in DC. Brandon made my move so easy, and really helped ease my anxieties about the relocation. When I told him that I loved entertaining outside and grilling out, he immediately suggested an apartment with a huge patio that overlooked the pool. I couldn't be happier! The two outdoor kitchens, heated saltwater pool, and fire pit have made entertaining my new friends a huge hit. Everyone that comes over to my new apartment is shocked with how beautiful and well maintained it is. Brandon really listened and it made a huge difference. Thank you Brandon!" Jennifer A
"I received one of Gables Upper Rock's post cards last fall and decided to tour the community when my lease was up in February. My husband and I have a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Murray and walking him around our old North Bethesda apartment was tough because of all of the traffic and congestion. I didn't want to give up my gourmet kitchen or my soaking tub, so when we found Upper Rock, we were immediately sold. The community has a shuttle to the Shady Grove Metro which makes my husband's commute to DC less stressful, and there are so many great places to walk our dog. It really feels like they planned this place for dog owners in mind. I even hear that one of the new buildings with have a Pet Grooming Salon! Just last month, Murray met new friends at the Yappy Hour that Gabby, the Assistant Manager, hosted for dog owners, and he already has a play date with my neighbor's Pugs. It's the little things that make it feel like home." Christina B
According to James Sprague, Community Manager, "Gables Residential is a not only a great place to work but more importantly, they really do believe in taking care of the way people live. I take pride in having happy residents. It makes it easy to come to work when you have such a beautiful community to be proud to represent.”
The amenities offered that enhance the daily lifestyle at Upper Rock are unparalleled. "Gables Upper Rock was an opportunity for us to bring style and luxury to a market that is more accustom to traditional apartments. From Club UR, our hot game room with total Sports Immersion, to the beautifully landscaped grounds, no detail was overlooked. There is something at Gables Upper Rock that will appeal to everyone", said J'aime Huret, Regional Manager.
