The Flats designed with Lee University students in mind

Posted

School begins for the fall semester at Lee University next week, and students who have not located residences may be in a quandary about where to live during their time at the school.

New apartments have been completed just beyond the regular residences that are now available for renting. The Flats is located on Maple Street at the intersection with 17th Street.

“Student living on the edge of campus” is how the apartments are described. Not only are they built primarily for students of Lee, but are quite luxurious, especially for four-bedroom apartments.

That’s right. There are four bedrooms in the apartments, and as a special feature, each bedroom features its own bathroom with shower/tub.

There are two different styles of apartments at The Flats: those on the first floor and those on the second floors. The difference is the lower apartments are all on one level, while those on the second floor also feature a staircase from that area to a third floor that connects with the apartment portion below it.

All four bedrooms are, of course, on the one level in the ground level of those apartments. On the second floor, one of the four bedrooms is on the first level, while the other three are upstairs.

The apartments feature a living room area that connects with the kitchen. There is a separation between the two by a counter that not only features a view of the living room, but also granite-style countertops.

The kitchens in each apartment are fully equipped, with oven and matching refrigerator. There is ample room for a microwave oven or toaster oven and other appliances for the kitchen.

One of amenities that will appeal to students more than just about any other is the laundry room, which feature both a washer and dryer.

Some of the apartments feature balconies or patios, and each has hardwood style flooring.

Along with the bathrooms connected to each spacious bedroom, each also has large closets. Each bedroom can also be locked by key from the outside to ensure privacy.

Since it will mostly cater to Lee University students, there are bike racks outside each unit, and plenty of parking available as well.

The Flats is so near the school, students who live in the apartments will be able to walk to class and campus events. Many of the upper apartments also feature beautiful views of the Lee University campus.

Should any of the students or any other residents have young children, the apartments are just blocks away from Mayfield Elementary School.

Easy access to downtown Cleveland is available from The Flats, either by vehicle or walking. All special areas of the university campus are also within walking distance, including the gymnasium, and Schimmels Park is just blocks away at the intersection of Parker and 20th streets.

For those students with vehicles, The Flats is close to 20th Street N.W., which gives quick access to North Ocoee Street or APD 40, making it easy to get to Interstate 75 or to visits to Polk County and the Cherokee National Forest.

The Flats apartments became available on Aug. 14, so many already have occupants. To find out if there are vacancies at the apartments, contact The Flats at 423-716-1812.
