Award-Winning Green Communities
Gables Central Park
Gables Central Park was the first multifamily community to participate in the Austin Energy Green Building Certification program. The community features a large shared on-site pond constructed as a bioswale that helps manage stormwater runoff and prevents downstream flooding. Beyond providing these ecosystem services and promoting biodiversity, this natural space is open to the public and is home to several preserved heritage trees, including Austin’s 2008 Tree of the Year. Along with a 0.8-mile urban walking trail, this picturesque park serves as a functional water feature and a community anchor.
Gables Pointe 14
Gables Pointe 14 is a community built on an urban infill site, featuring a functional and decorative rainwater capture and filtration system. Beginning with rainwater capture on the roof, the water flows through a series of ornamental bio-ponds before reaching a retention vault. From there, it is gradually released into the stormwater system. As the bio-ponds are prominent elements at the community entrance, they were designed with an architectural flair, making them both functional and visually striking.
Gables Arsenal Street
Gables Arsenal Street boasts a lush rain garden that offers both recreational benefits and essential ecosystem services. Dubbed the "third courtyard," this vibrant greenspace provides residents with an area for relaxation, outdoor grilling, and dog-walking. Beyond its recreational uses, the rain garden plays a vital role in managing the community’s stormwater and serves as a habitat for local pollinators, including bees, butterflies, birds, squirrels, and rabbits. During rain events, the garden enhances stormwater retention and aids in water infiltration into the soil, helping to filter out pollutants and replenish our water supply.
