submitted by Justin R. - |Recommended: YesSolid — First Floor hears the electrical compactor. Hallway door is not very soundproofed. Hoping for a quick resolution to the television on the roof. The rest of the facility is amazing Excited for my time here
response from property -Justin, thank you for your 5-Star review. Regarding the television on the roof, a new one was installed just last month and we are expecting the company to come service it any day now. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us with any other concerns you may have. We look forward to seeing you around the community! - Tiana G.
submitted by Darrell W. - |Recommended: YesNew building, great location — Just moved in, but it seems nice.

submitted by Amanda F. - |Recommended: YesAmazing — Building is amazingly quiet - can’t hear anything from outside. building amenities are clean and everything in the unit is new. Everyone is friendly and I love living here - my only issue is with the lack of parking for residents in the garage, and there’s no partnerships with other parking in the area.
response from property -Amanda, thank you for the 5-Star rating and for sharing your thoughts about both our property and our team. We apologize for not being able to meet your parking needs at this time. We have recently found out that the garage we had been referring residents to is no longer offering parking to our residents. Unfortunately, the others we could partner with do not operate 24/7. Instead, we are recommending that residents use SpotHero or SpotAngels because we have found those to be the best resources currently. We look forward to seeing you around the community! - Tiana G.
submitted by Paul R. - |Recommended: NoProperty Review — Pro Staff is excellent. Adequate kitchen storage. Con Apartment layout for one bedroom is not to liking. Angled master bedroom door creates issue with utilizing bedroom space. Strange layout of living room electrical, internet, and cable hookups make living space hard to utilize. Straight view from surrounding apartments outside through Master bedroom balcony window into bathroom is very poor design. Carpet in bedroom low quality and laid poorly. Garage is only designed for compact cars. Any mid to full size vehicles is hazardous to operate in such confined space. The garage vehicle entry and exit is the absolute most epic fail of an engineering design. Multiple vehicles have been damaged as indicated in all the paint scraps seen on door frame. See this as a civil liability for the property owners.
response from property -Paul, we are sorry that you are dissatisfied with your current apartment home. We encourage you to reach out to our Leasing Team if you would like to explore the options for an alternative apartment with floorplan and layout that works better for you. We are also happy to have a member of our maintenance team come inspect your bedroom carpet. Our parking garage, like most urban garages, is tighter than a typical suburban garage, however it is not designed exclusively for compact vehicles. Once Phase II of this project is completed, we trust you will find that entry and exit to the garage will be improved. A member of our team will be reaching out if they haven't already so we can try to assist you with your concerns. - Tiana G.
submitted by Bailey S. - |Recommended: YesSO thrilled. — I recently moved into Meridian after searching all of the city for apartments and this place is the BEST of the best. Not only is it reasonably priced and gorgeous, the apartments are up to date and come with so many features that I cannot stop raving about. Perhaps my favorite thing of all has been the staff. They are so kind and friendly I immediately felt at home. I could go on all day but to keep it brief--- if you get the chance to move here, jump at it
response from property -Bailey, Thank you for the 5-Star rating and for your very kind words about the community and property team. Our goal is to make sure that everyone is happy with their home at Meridian on First and we're so glad to hear that we've achieved that with you. We look forward to seeing you around the community.

submitted by Jack A. - |Recommended: YesA Wonderful Property in the heart of Navy Yard — Ever since moving in this place has exceeded my expectations and I have no real complaints to speak of. The management has been super nice and helpful and even maintenance has been quick to resolve issues. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a nice apartment in Navy Yard.

submitted by Ashley E. - |Recommended: YesGreat place to live — Thoroughly enjoy the location of this apartment and all of the amenities it offers to its residents. I can sometimes hear my neighbors, but it is not a level that would upset me enough to complain. The front desk and leasing office staff are very welcoming and happy to help in any situation. The parking garage is a little tight, but finding a spot I feel comfortable parking my car in is always possible, I may just have to walk a bit farther to the stairwell or elevator.

submitted by Ryan F. - |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 .
response from property -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
submitted by Erik E. - |Recommended: YesComfortable and welcoming — Looked at multiple properties in the area, but it wasn't until we were welcomed by Hayden on a Sunday morning that we felt at home. Clean building, friendly and extremely helpful staff. When working through the kinks of a new building the staff and maintenance team are quick and thorough to rectify even the simplest issue.
response from property -Erik, Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts on Meridian on First. We're so glad to hear that you are happy in your home and that any issues you've experienced have been addressed quickly. We look forward to seeing you around the building for a long time to come.

submitted by Kaitlin M. - |Recommended: YesMeridian on First Review — The Meridian on First has been a great place to live thus far.

submitted by Madeline L. - |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.
response from property -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
