|Recommended: NoDirty and Smells — Not once have I seen someone clean the elevators, lobby, or hallways, whereas in other apartment builds I would see this daily. Dirt accumulates day after day in each elevator and no one cleans them up. Hallways smell. I have complained about this and no one seems to do anything.
Kamran, Thank you for taking the time to share your candid thoughts about Meridian at Ballston Commons. As we strive to exceed expectations relative to cleanliness we are concerned to hear that we are not meeting yours. We can assure you that our common areas are cleaned daily/on a regular basis and we've not seen what you mention in regard to the elevators. It would be very helpful to us if you would reach out when you see an elevator that you don't feel is clean so that we can address it immediately. We took your work order in November seriously and a deeper cleaning was done immediately to the carpeting on your hallway. We'd not heard from you (and so assumed that we'd completed the work order to your satisfaction) and have walked the hallway multiple times and have detected no odors coming from the carpeting. We will be reaching out to you to further discuss your concerns and ways that we may be able to better meet your expectations. Regards- Karen K
|Recommended: YesDon't Own a Car — Lovely amenities, great kitchen appliances, but if you own a car that isn't the size of a smart car, good luck getting a parking spot. And there are no cameras to protect you for insurance.

|Recommended: YesNever-ending Renovation Noise — I want to preface by saying that overall, I do enjoy living here. The building is well kept and my apartment itself is very nice aside from some old fixtures that I thought would be updated before moving in . But, I've only lived in this apartment building for a month, and there seems to be a consistent stream of noise from apartment renovations. Every week there's new apartments that apparently need to be redone. I understand the need to keep up with quality, but as someone who has to work from home, it would be nice to have a break from it every once in a while.
Jillian, Thank you for the 5-Star rating and for taking the time to share your candid thoughts about Meridian at Ballston. We're so glad to hear that you are enjoying your new apartment. We do understand that the renovation noise can be disruptive and so make sure to inform residents of when it will take place and then complete the noisy parts of the work as quickly as possible. We are concerned to hear that we fell short in regard to some of your move in expectations and so somebody will be reaching out to you to further discuss. Regards- Karen K

|Recommended: YesGreat location and People — Great spot to live if you love doing things around you. Right in the heart of Ballston, easy to hop on metro, get to restaurants, and meet up with friends. A very walkable area. You'll pay the premium in parking at any apartment building so don't be surprised. Only caveat is we wish the pool would be open always, that is at least the deck on the roof. It is only open when the lifeguard is around so that's a bummer. Other than that, the remodeled units are really great and we love them, overall no complaints with the building
James, thank you for sharing your thoughts on Meridian at Ballston Commons. We are happy to hear that you enjoy your home and its convenient location!

We look forward to your continued residence. - Tiana G.

|Recommended: YesGreat — Great
|Recommended: YesGreat Property — I hav moved in recently and it has been great so far The only issue that I have noticed is the parking garage is very tight, spaces are small and people tend to take up more than one spot so it is tricky to find parking. There has been limited construction noise but the overall noise is very low.
|Recommended: YesLove it but hate the construction noises at 8am — No bug problem which is great compared to lots of other apartments, lots of pets throughout the building, great pool and amenities gym could use a remodel tho . Overall I love it and would recommend anyone to live here especially because of location. If you have someone living in the sunroom, like myself, it’s almost impossible to have light in your living room and privacy in your sunroom room.
|Recommended: YesGreat Location and Amenities — The amenities are excellent and the one bedroom apartment is quite spacious considering the prime location. Love the sunroom
|Recommended: NoIt's not great — Pros The location is fantastic. Also we've been very happy with the efficiency of the maintenance staff. Cons Fixtures could be better the sliding doors to our sunroom don't close all the way and never have, and adjusting the kitchen faucet between stream and spray is finicky renovated apartments might be better about this . While noise from other apartments is almost nonexistent, the noise from renovations carries awfully — and there are renovations pretty much all the time these days. I've been unable to work and my wife has been unable to relax. Can't speak to parking availability as we don't use it.
|Recommended: YesLove it — Its great, newly renovated and in a great location
|Recommended: YesClean, nice, quiet — It is nice.
