Location, Location, Location

Real estate is always about “location, location, location” and at the White Oak Apartments, we have it covered for today’s commuter.

We are located at the intersection of 29 and New Hampshire Avenue (Route 650). Travel 3.8 miles and you’re at the ICC and its easy access to 270. Be on 495 the Capital Beltway in under 5 minutes as it’s only 1.8 miles away. Headed north? If so, I-95 is in your sights in under 10 minutes at just over 5 miles from your front door.

 

If you’re not a driver there are several bus routes for getting to work and around town. Metro Bus K6 travels to the Fort Totten Station. The Montgomery County Department of Transportation offers the Ride On bus service which has several stops throughout our communities. The 22 Bus will take you all the way to Silver Spring Metro which also has a Marc Train station. The 10 Bus heads west and stops at both the Glenmont and Twinbrook Metro Stations. These buses have several nearby stops making it easy for local employers such as the FDA and its large White Oak campus, the Army Research Lab in Adelphi, and the White Oak Shopping Center. Eliminating a commute relieves stress and adds hours to your week.
