Gables Presents Minor Changes to the Planning Board

Last September, Gables presented to the White Flint Implementation Committee a series of  minor changes they were making to their design since some things didn’t translate well from conception to design. Yesterday, the Planning Board reviewed those changes. You can read the staff report at  Gables White Flint Limited Site Plan Amendment No. 82015001A.

Gables is  a mixed-use development that will bring up to 500 apartments in three buildings to the corner of Executive Boulevard and Old Georgetown Road.

Gables requests include slightly increase the height of the western building; change the Limits of Disturbance to accommodate revised stormwater management facilities; remove the pedestrian bridges between two wings of the proposed building; remove the private dog park; modify the design of the green roof areas; relocate the bikeshare station into the public right-of-way; redesign and relocate the public art elements; and minor changes to the architectural details of the proposed building.
