Abstract: It is well known that a Gabor representation on $ L^{2}(\mathbb{R}^{d})$ admits a frame generator $ h\in L^{2}(\mathbb{R}^{d})$ if and only if the associated lattice satisfies the Beurling density condition, which in turn can be characterized as the ``trace condition'' for the associated von Neumann algebra. It happens that this trace condition is also necessary for any projective unitary representation of a countable group to admit a frame vector. However, it is no longer sufficient for general representations, and in particular not sufficient for Gabor representations when they are restricted to proper time-frequency invariant subspaces. In this short note we show that the condition is also sufficient for a large class of projective unitary representations, which implies that the Gabor density theorem is valid for subspace representations in the case of irrational types of lattices.
