Paradigm Management L.P.
Recent Paradigm Management L.P. reviews
Ideal location near Courthouse metro station. Walking distance to farmers market every weekend, severest restsurants, and movie theater. Few grocery stores within a 1 mile radius -Trader Joe’s, Foods, Giant. Building houses several young professionals and includes a gym, pool, raquetball/squash court, half basketball court, and two clubhouse common spaces where some events are hosted by our Cares Team (free food, mixer events, or classes).
Great value but a 12 min walk to metro
Great price for Arlington.
The floorplan is really spacious and the apartment comes with a washer and dryer. The apartment is on the older side and has carpeting, but everything is pretty decently maintained.
The community has events every month with free food, along with free Panera that can be picked up twice a month.
The property is a twelve minute walk to both the Ballston and Virginia Square metro, which isn't the most pleasant in inclement weather. Also, there aren' t a lot of sidewalks in the immediate surroundings, especially on the walk to the Virginia Square metro.
There isn't that much fun stuff to do around the area. I would recommend living in Clarendon or DC.
Comfortable place with great amenities but appliances outdated
Overall I really like this apartment complex and that's due to a number of factors:
1. Location: it's right across the street to the metro, bus stations right out front, bike rentals right out front, a farmers market on thursdays in the courtyard in the front, walking distance to a diverse selection of restaurants and grocery stores, plus it's close to all the other popular apartment complexes in Arlington so if you have friends living in those it's super easy to visit. It's also really easy to get into DC from here (15 minutes on the metro, similar for car, you could even run a lap and get there on foot (~5 miles). It's also right across the street from the new Ballston Quarters which is a millenial-based shopping plaza.
2. There's quite a bit of amenities offered-- rooftop pool and clubhouse/ lounge, racquetball court, gym, car wash (not free), coffee in the mornings.
3. The apartment buildings are pretty standard in size compared to nearby apartments and are generally pretty comfortable.
4. Some other extra things-- oftentimes the apartment hosts holiday themed events which is cute. I'd say the majority of residents are young professionals, but we have a couple older folks and couples with kids.
The only drawbacks would be the appliances-- had to submit multiple work orders for our in-house washer and dryer (one time there wasn't any water, and right now our dryer won't stop the cycle so you have to manually pull the door open), also work orders for the heat (water wouldn't heat up/ heater wouldn't work and blew out cold air). So the appliances are pretty outdated. They've been doing a good job on being responsive though. Most of our work orders have been fulfilled within a day or two.
I love Meridian- right next to the metro, great amenities
1 bed + sunroom is nice, can flex sunroom into second bedroom if desired
Great location - half a block from the Ballston metro stop, right across the street from the Ballston mall, which has a Macy's, Chipotle, Chick Fil-A, Punch Bowl Social, and more. About half a mile to a public-use park, track, and running trails.
Amenities - gym, racket ball court, giant top floor lounge, outdoor rooftop pool. Wish it was a basketball court instead.
$1920 for a 1 bedroom + sunroom is pretty solid, but super expensive if you're living alone. For a typical apartment setup in Arlington, people probably pay $1,500-$2,200 per person before parking ($100-$150 per car is pretty standard across all of Arlington). 2 bedroom + sunrooms are high in demand. The sunroom can easily be turned into a second bedroom with enough space to fit a full bed, dresser, night stand, and more. It's also reasonably insulated, soundproof, and has enough privacy if you spend ~$100 on nicer curtains. May have to keep the sliding door open during extreme temperatures, but the building as a whole is internally heated so the apartment equilibrium ~65-70 degrees without turning on your own A/C.
Sound leaks a little through the front door, but the rest of the apartment is very soundproof - the only time I hear my neighbors is when they're walking down the hall to their apartments.
Walk-in closet is nice. Construction seems stable. Parking spaces are narrow, just like anywhere else in Falls Church-Arlington.
Apartment allows dogs - always fun to pet in the elevator.
Adequate experience but perhaps too expensive
The apartment building itself is nice with a lobby, reception desk, gym and other amenities like a club room and pool. Our apartment is a decent size and my roommate and I fit very comfortably, both with our own rooms and bathrooms. We have had a few problems with our AC unit that in turn results in an incredibly high electricity bill. While management has sent over a number of people to work on this, the problem has yet to be resolved. Other than that the experience of living at the Meridian has been good.
I love living here.
Meridian at Gallery Place Review
Good Location New Management
About a ten minute walk to two different metro stops (yellow/blue line). Metro takes about 15-20min to get to Howard metro.
Relatively nice apartments, but the staff has been changing lately. Prior staff was very friendly and welcoming, but not sure about the current staff.
Walking distance to lots of shops and food. Building tries to have events (food trucks, pizza, etc.) for residents once every few months.
Some apartments have views of the capital. Very easy to get to the DCA airport.
good location for better price than Logan circle DuPont circle
I recommend this place
I've lived here for almost 3 years in two different units. I've been really pleased with the management and staff here. They are responsive, friendly, and helpful. My neighbors have also all been friendly and respectful. The location is great (long walk to campus, short walk to metro), parking is ample, and the units are freshly renovated so they feel brand new.
The Meridian Rocks
I love this apartment complex. It is a little far from school, but you save so much money, they are super pet friendly, and it is nice to have a life off campus.
Love the Apartment
I love this apartment so much! The community is great, the other residents are nice, and the location is very convenient. The gym is very big and has everything that I need for my workouts which is very important to me. I also love the rooftop for the summer.

Great Apartment for Recent Grads
Young crowd but very professional and clean building. The rooftop pool (and BBQ area) is the place to be in the city on the weekends during the summer and you're a 5 minute walk from metro. The gym is as good as LifeTime or equinox and they offer free spin classes, too.
