Its a pretty good spot.
Affordable and Solid
Great building - thin walls but solid space and decent rooms for what you’re paying. Not as nice as some luxury buildings in the area but more affordable.
More space for less money than in DC, right next to the entrance to the GW Parkway and a block from the Braddock Road metro station. Walking distance to King Street and the river. All apartments have a huge sunroom.

Great building and amenities
A great option in Old Town Alexandria
I wanted to live in Alexandria because rent was much more affordable than it is in the city, but the area still has lots of parks, bars, and restaurants. This building was in the perfect location, less than a 10 minute walk to the King Street Metro station, and only a few blocks away from the restaurants and bars on King Street. There is also a park across the street and a Whole Foods a block away. The building itself is in good shape and the staff are very friendly. Because of Covid, we haven't been able to take much advantage of amenities, but the building has a gym, a pool, and a courtyard with grills.
Would Recommend to CUA Student
I am happy here. The facilities are nice and everything is clean. It's easy to get to CUA from here--about 20 minutes driving and about 35 minutes by metro (including walking to and from the metro).
Great Spot if you're willing to commute.
Pay a little more, but have over 950 sq ft, dog park, dog wash station, friendly area, lots of space for the dog, sun room acts as an office. Have the perks of DC about 20 min metro away with quiet and space of non-city life.
Stay away from Meridian Gallery Place
This place is awful. Air conditioner was broken every 2-3 weeks during the summer and management refused any remedy to fix - even blamed us by saying it is unreasonable to have the temperature below 74.
Elevators are frequently broken. It might take you 8 minutes to get down from one of the top floors. Stairs are not an option - they lock the doors.
Management is very rude and not helpful.
Grills are frequently broken.
There is often trash/food scattered throughout the hallways.
Remodeling the building currently so it is very very loud during business hours. Not able to WFH because of this.
Meridian at Ballston - A Solid Option
The Meridian at Ballston is perfectly located for Metro users (right next to the Ballston station). It's within easy walking distance of CVS and Harris Teeter, and is right next to the mall. It's a 15-20 minute walk to GMU's Arlington campus. Management is responsive and efficient at solving any problems with HVAC, washer/dryer etc.. Rent is a bit cheaper compared to other options in the area without sacrificing value. Comes with fitness center and rooftop pool.
Great place to live
Right across the street from the metro and walking distance into old town. Super quiet and friendly area. The building is clean and workers here are friendly and resourceful. Pet friendly and there are a lot of dog owners here. I’m a young woman and feel safe here. Apartment will often have small events where there’s frees food and drinks which is really nice. The pool is clean, the gym is extremely nice, and the club room is also spacious/nice. Commute to campus is easy. My roommates and I had a 2 bed, 2 bath with a sunroom (which has a door), and we made the sunroom a third bedroom which made this a pretty affordable place given the area. The bedrooms are huge and so are the bathrooms; closets are giant walk ins. Overall, I would say I am happy here.
Great place to live
I really like this apartment. It has a lot of amenities including a great gym, a dog run, a rooftop pool, and a 24 hour concierge. I feel very safe there and the staff is very friendly and helpful. It is expensive and you do get what you pay for. It's close to lots of dining options and it's an easy 20 minute bike ride or 30 minutes on the DC circulator (ride for a $1). Parking is an additional $210 a month but you don't really need a car. It's also very close to union station and less than a mile to the national mall. My particular floor plan is cheaper because it faces the courtyard. Less sun... but much quieter.
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
