Nestled just off the Shady Grove exit, The Flats at Shady Grove offers you a unique apartment community in a quiet urban oasis with the convenience of city living. Over 200 affordable, boutique-style apartments with community features and apartment amenities unlike any other apartment community in Montgomery County, all priced significantly less than our competition.
Great community with nice people. Quiet and clean. In a very accessible area.
The Flats is located in a great location. Shady Grove/Rockville has an endless amount of shopping, dining, entertainment options, and you are 5 minutes away from a metro station and next to major highways to get anywhere you need to in the DC metro area. Given the location, the price for these apartments are by far the most affordable that you will find in the area. There are some big negatives so far. The biggest problem is that communication with the front office staff is extremely poor. In order to get a response back from them for any issues you might have, it will take endless amounts of calls and emails, and even then you likely won't get a response back. I've found it's just easiest to go to the office in-person. Additionally, they use an online system to track your rent and account balance, and it is almost always inaccurate. They only display what your total balance is (rent + utilities/water), so it is difficult to find out where the exact inaccuracy is. This is the first apartment I've lived in where I've had this kind of problem with the online system and the lack of communication with office staff. Finally, the exterior of the apartment buildings is a little bit of an eye-sore, at least currently. This is an old hotel that they renovated.
They are renovating and painting at least part of the flooring, but currently the flooring, stairs, and exterior of the apartment complex is not very attractive, which is why all the pictures online only show the interiors. The actual apartments themselves are fine, although the windows have no screens and there are flies all over the apartment complex. So in the spring/summer, if you want to open your windows to cool the apartment, you risk flooding your apartment with a flood of flies.
This is one of the best new apartment home communities in the heart of Rockville. At the Flats is all about the living experience, the management and staff goes out of their way to ensure your move in experience is flawless and once in that you feel happy in your new home. Transportation ease are among the best with 1-270/370 easily accessible and commuting in the metro is a breeze with Shady Grove metro nearby. Plenty to do for all since the Flats are strategically located within a mile of the Rio Entertainment Complex, Rockville Town Center and King Farms. And another star is that the management is continuously improving the property with state of the art renovations and tenants amenities.. Great Job Rosalinda and the rest of the Flats team!
