Gables Residential, a leader in the management and development of multifamily apartment communities, was recognized by Georgia Tree Council and received the Outstanding New Development Grand Award. The award recognizes Gables’ commitment to sustainability and the company’s endeavor to minimize the impact to the tree canopy and surrounding environment. In addition, it highlights Gables’ efforts for thoughtful reuse by recovering, storing, and preserving the trees that were removed from one of their newest developments in Atlanta, Georgia, Gables Vinings Village.

Gables Residential used the salvaged timber of trees at the Gables Vinings Village site and repurposed them throughout the community. Gables engaged Atlanta furniture maker Madera Arts and Eutree to help craft flooring, paneling, furniture, and other architectural wood products from the salvaged timber of the trees for use in Gables Vinings Village.

While the removal of some trees was required to make way for Gables Vinings Village, the company partnered with Atlanta expert arborist, David Dechant at Arbor Guard, to minimize the impact to the tree canopy and surrounding environment. Both groups worked together to recover, store, and preserve the trees from this project. Each of the trees were selected for a specific purpose. The selection criteria is a core value of the project team that allows for intentional design of the product.

John Akin, Chief Investment Officer for Gables Residential stated, “Our development and construction teams evaluate any sustainability opportunities for our projects. Sustainable development is a Gables hallmark. We are honored to be recognized with this award and look forward to continuing our green footprint.”
