Dated, but good.|Recommended: YesLots of 1980s era appliances. Refrigerators do not make ice and rely on residents twisting plastic trays. Biggest issue is the ventilation system--smokers can seriously affect other tenants through the connected system, at times causing extreme discomfort, but this can be addressed by the staff.
Great maintance review |Recommended: YesRene came to fix our dryer the day after the Fourth of July. I knew they must of had a lot of Maintance calls due to the holiday. He did an amazing job and worked so hard to fix the motor in our dryer to make sure we could do laundry. We just got back from vacation and he took his time to make sure everything worked smoothly. So happy with the hard work he put in and how polite he was. We give him 5 stars. Thanks for all your hard work Rene
I love the property. Clean and well kept.|Recommended: YesI think it's amazing. The amenities and location are great.
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.

Mr.|Recommended: YesI would highly recommend this property. It is a great location close to METRO and very safe and friendly atmosphere. The staff is very professional and maintenance requests are resolved in a timely manner.
Would recommend|Recommended: YesYou can't hear noises between apartments. Package concierge is nice. Ability to pay online is a huge plus. Convenient location. Friendly staff. Complimentary morning coffee is amazing. One big negative is that parking spaces are TIGHT.
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
