Generally, Meridia is not such a bad place to live. However, there are several reasons as to why many tenants (including myself), may elect to not renew their lease. The cons certainly outweigh the pros at this residence.
Pros: Gene the maintenance man is awesome. Although at times he may be overloaded with work as there are only two maintenance men to service the entire building. Beautiful apartment layout and aesthetics. The cleaning ladies do a wonderful job with maintaining the building.
Cons: There are no soundproof barriers for the apartments. You can hear EVERYTHING. From the loud trucks that travel via E Linden, to your neighbors fornicating at 4am. (Yes this happened.) The cold draft in the apartments, especially during the winter time, is unbearable. It feels as though the apartment does not have any insulation whatsoever. So expect high heating costs from your energy supplier. There are no washer/dryer units in the 1 bedroom apartments. Only in the 2 bedrooms. The laundry facility is a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad THING! The machines do not wash clothes properly and constantly break down. The gym shouldn't be considered an "amenity". It has horrible/outdated/cheap equipment and It is extremely small for the amount of occupants in the building. The building has carpeting all throughout; they allow pets that urinate freely and have poor hygiene (blame the owners), so therefore the building hallways and common areas smell terrible. Especially in the entrance lobby. (Thankfully they just got rid of the carpets in the elevators.) The package room is another horrible "amenity". There was a theft issue that resulted in cameras being installed. Now there are time restrictions that limit the package room's accessibility. This really inconveniences residents. Delivery personnel will leave your packages in the garage area if they do not have access to the package room. If your package requires a signature, forget about receiving it. -Google has full review
Love my apartment very happy with my decision to call Meridia Home
Price is way too high for these appartments. Linden is NOT a nice town and has a high crime rate as well.
Laundry is NOT located in the unit and you can hear your neighbors through the walls. Building is located next to the cemantary and traffic is always bad there.
I would pay $1400 the max for this but I prefer not to live in Linden.
Meridia has nice apartments, nice amenities, and is close to nearby shopping & transportation. Parking is not the greatest; you have to pay for any designated space regardless if indoor or outdoor. But overall the living quarters are good.
Meridia Lifestyles is a beautiful place to call home. I love how spacious my one bedroom is, and the price compared to NYC one bedroom is a steal.
