The 348-unit Trees of Gainesville apartment complex off Jesse Jewell Parkway has opened the first of its 12 residential buildings, with the rest expected to be open for tenants by July.
“We’ve been pre-leasing since December,” said Brooks Saye, marketing representative, during a tour Thursday. “Some (apartments) are occupied now, and we’re constantly leasing and out marketing.”

The sprawling complex, near the Frances Meadows Aquatic Center, features apartments with one to three bedrooms and rents ranging from $950 to $1,399, Saye said.
Those are starting prices for apartments with standard flooring and countertops.
“We do offer upgraded finishes with granite countertops and hardwood plank flooring,” Saye said. “We want to give as many options as possible.”
Also, tenants will pay a $20 per month trash fee and $5 per month pest control fee. Cable and internet is offered separately, and residents pay for utilities. They also must show proof of renter’s insurance and pay a security deposit.
The complex will be gated and feature a resort-style saltwater swimming pool with 24-hour access. The pool isn’t finished, but should be ready for residents this summer, Saye said.
Trees of Gainesville also has a clubhouse with a fireplace, meeting space, business center and 24-hour fitness center and juice bar.
Residents also will be able to enjoy fire pits at the pool and a bocce ball court. The pool area “will be a great place to hang out and have friends over,” Saye said.
Destiny Yarbrough, community director, said the complex also is “targeting certain employers,” such as nearby Northeast Georgia Medical Center, for potential tenants, who would be close to work. Also very nearby is the Georgia Department of Transportation’s new district office where, through word of mouth, the complex has recently been able to get a tenant.
“That’s how we like it,” Yarbrough said, with a laugh. “It makes (leasing) easy.”
She also is personally excited about the complex opening up to the community.
“I live in Hall County, I love Hall County, so to get this property was a blessing for me,” Yarbrough said. “We’re very proud of it, very honored to be here.”
