|Recommended: YesGood Clean Asset — I unfortunately can hear the elevator ding from my unit, I'm a little shocked at the amount of activities group fitness classes, baseball watch parties on the roof, vendors in the lobby that have been scheduled during a pandemic. I also think residents should just have access to the package room. Set up a camera and allow tenants to go and get their own packages, this will save time for the property concierges and cut down on unnecessary interactions once again, we're in a pandemic .
Ryan, Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts about Meridian on First. We can understand your concern in regard to fitness classes and events during the pandemic. We have worked very hard to try to provide residents with some sense of community while also following CDC and District of Columbia guidelines and mandates. When we held some yoga classes, they were outdoors and people were socially distanced. The current spin class has a maximum of 5 attendees who are, again, socially distanced. The few resident events we have had have been virtual, outdoors and socially distanced, Grab N Go events, or, in the case of the few vendors who have visited the property, set up in an open lobby space with adherence to social distancing guidelines. As you know, additionally, masks are required throughout the public spaces of the community at all times including during these functions. We are concerned about your comments in regard to package pick up as our system is a self-serve Amazon Locker system. The only items that go to the front desk are those that are too large to fit into the Amazon lockers, those that sit in a locker for 5 days without being picked up by a resident, or, overflow on the days we receive too many to be able to have them all placed in the lockers. If you have any questions about how our package pick-up system works, please feel free to give us a call at 202-335-3000 and we'll be happy to walk you through it. Please always feel free to reach directly out to us with any questions you may have about processes or things going on at the community. Regards- Karen K

|Recommended: YesSo far, so good — So far my experience at the Meridian has been great. The worst part of the property is the parking garage. Far too often is the alley blocked with the vehicles or moving trucks. The angle at which the parking garage is at is just terrible and because of the angle, you can honestly only enter and exit from the same side. Very poorly designed.
Madeline, Thank you for your candid comments about Meridian on First. We're happy to hear that you are enjoying your time at Meridian on First and will pass your comments about the garage along to the appropriate people. Regards- Karen K

|Recommended: YesI have not had the pleasure of touring Meridian on First in person, but I did have the pleasure of working with Nabila, a super nice leasing agent. She was extremely professional and patient with me. I ask a lot of questions and she was able to answer all of them. The one-bedroom units with sunrooms make this property very unique. I watched all of the apartment tour videos which I found quite entertaining. The leasing agents at this property gave a fresh perspective when creating content for their brand new property. I have passively been looking at different apartment communities pre and post COVID-19. Nabila has been a great resource for me by keeping me apprised on specials while also not overwhelming my inbox with a bunch of leasing specials. I am hopeful after this pandemic I can make Meridian on First my new home.
