Clean, Friendly Staff, Good Amenities, Safe|Recommended: YesI enjoy living at Meridian, the amenities are good. I particularly liked that it was safe. The reception desk was great, there was someone to greet me when I came home and it was good not to worry about receiving my packages. I thought one of the receptionists could do better with his customer service as it seemed every time I asked him for help, he seemed bothered not matter what the request. Maintenance was over all well-done. I liked that the gym and club room were tidy. When the food disposal had issues, and the air filters needed to be replaced, management took care of it within 24 hours. The only request I put in that never was answered was for a steam cleaning for the carpeting, despite the fact I made the request multiple times. On a different note, the community events were good and came at good times. However, I wish there has been a community forum on an online platform. It would have been nice to have been able to share baked goods I'd made, or see if anyone had furniture or household items that they didn't want anymore. That may have helped with some of the dumping of large furniture downstairs despite signs saying it wasn't allowed , which I'm guessing the management found annoying. Move-in and move-out are really easy logistically and the leasing office professionals were timely and professional.
Overall it's really nice|Recommended: YesThe only changes that I would make to this property would be to try to fit another game like foosball or shuffleboard in the club room, the room has an insane amount of seating and is never near full. I would also try to find a place to put one or two grills for the residents to use. Besides that, keep doing what you're doing, I renewed my lease because I really enjoy living here.
Wonderful place to live. |Recommended: YesGreat access, great people, safe area
Love living here |Recommended: YesI've been at the Meridian Ballston for about 5 months now. No real complaints. The front desk staff is great, any issues you may have are addressed quickly and the location is unbeatable. Can't wait for the summertime when the rooftop pool is open Would recommend living here to just about anyone.
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

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
