I've enjoyed living here.|Recommended: YesI would definitely say this is a nice place to live. My one complaint would ABSOUTELY be the parking. Having a larger car makes it harder to find spots the way the garage is designed with the large beams, and there have been nights where it's been too croweded and no spots for a large car and I've had to park on the street. It makes me super angry that for the price I'm not GUARANTEED a spot. Lower the rate or guarantee a spot.

Great experience so far. Would recommend 100 |Recommended: YesAmazing location next to the metro, restaurants etc. Top level amenities. The gym could use a couple of additions squat rack . The staff is great.
Issues with large pets and management|Recommended: No- Management recently decided to allow large 150 pound dogs in the building causing many issues - I have personally seen residents fight in lobby about one resident dog attacking another resident child - High rise apartment living is not the place for large dogs - Majority residents do not have dogs. Management new pet policy is helping existing residents - Management is not friendly and awkward - Apartment is a home and requires a friendly management staff - its all about community

Solid Living Community|Recommended: YesWe've been in Ballston Meridian Commons for 8 months and we love it. The parking can be a bit difficult due to the small spaces, but overall we have no complaints. The halls are pretty clean and the coffee in the morning is delicious We are also big fans of the gym, which has surprisigly up-to-date and advanced machines. 4 5 stars overall
Great and affordable property|Recommended: YesOverall I had a very positive experience at the Meridian. I list out some of the finer details below, but all in all it was a very well-kept building with great amenities and very affordable. There were some very minor layout problems I experienced while at the Meridian, and being that you're in the middle of Ballston, the streets can get noisy sometimes. But aside from those issues, the apartments were beautiful, spacious, and of reasonably good quality. Pros -Beautiful apartments with sun rooms, clean kitchens and bathrooms, and a pleasant atmosphere. The rooms were also pretty spacious with plenty of room for my roommates and I to move about the kitchen, have a spacious living room, and plenty of closet space. -Great amenities the business center, pool, and gym are all fantastic and have no additional costs -Affordable My roommates and I only needed a six-month lease, and the Meridian was one of the only buildings in the area not to jack-up the price for our lease -Maintenance staff were always timely and helpful -Leasing agents were very friendly and helpful and made a point to remember your name -Controlled building access and package system were also nice touches -The lobby is always clean and the staff always look professional -Moving in and out was fairly easy just had to rent the freight elevator Cons -The dryer wouldn't always dry my clothes in one take would sometimes have to do 2-3 tries -The layout of the parking garage is pretty cramped it's not always easy to park your car -Just a neighborhood-issue rather than the Meridian, but the streets can be pretty noisy. We were on the sixth floor and I could still hear pedestrians below us late into the night. - very minor issue but all of the light fixtures just seemed backward to me I normally consider the switch closest to the light to be the one to flip, but it always happened to be the other one, but I guess that's just me
Overall it is a good apartment|Recommended: YesI tell them it is a good place to live for the price. I like coming home everyday and the staff at the desk are great.
Great property for young life |Recommended: YesI love living in the Ballston Meridian. The area is amazing, and the apartments are in wonderful shape. The only con is how hot it can get in the apartment itself, even with the AC.
Fantastic|Recommended: YesThe Meridian at Ballston Commons is a great place to live. The pool offers a nice escape during the summer heat. The staff is always very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. If I have an issue that needs to be resolved with the apartment, the maintenance staff is prompt and very thorough. I would recommend to anyone looking to live in the Arlington area to strongly consider The Meridian.
Spacious and new|Recommended: YesFriendly receptionists. Nice gym and racquetball court.
