I've enjoyed my time living at Legacy at Meridian. The location is the biggest selling point. It's convenient to Duke and to the RTP area. Amenities are pretty much what you expect from any apartment complex in this price range. Parking is tricky sometimes. My only complaint is that it's hard to get to the office because it's only open from 9AM-6PM. If I have a package that gets delivered there, it may sit for days because the only time I can get to the office is on Saturday.
Very friendly staff, love the trash pick up program and very clean apartment complex. In response to the building exterior rating below, I think the new color choices being painted on the garages and buildings have created a dated, dirty look. The light color was significantly more inviting, modern and clean looking. If the complex was painted the way it's being painted now, I would not have stopped in on a whim to check out the apartments as I did when first moving into Legacy at Meridian.
Wish I could give no star. When I first saw the apartment I thought it was such a great one. Then I started to realize everything in there was made of cheap materials and easy to break. The staff members one year ago were nice but current ones were too aggressive. If you dont submit the paycheck before 4pm on the 5th, they will order you to get a money order no matter you are in the middle of work or not. I felt bad every time after talking to them. The maintanence team was nice though. Its not a pet friendly apartment either. If you have a pet, you need to prepare to give up getting your deposit back or to pay even more at the time you move out. The complex is a low-medium level setup anyway.
The initial meeting to set up renting an apartment was an easy process and i thought after living here i would not move out, but there was no timely offer of renewing the rental. In fact the rent got increased by at least 20% and the staff were very unfriendly in working out moving out details. it felt that they had got their money and just didnt want me to continue to rent. After reviewing other places in the area i found out there were better places with more modern apartments.
We are very happy living at the Legacy Apartments. The staff is very friendly and treat you like family. They do so many fun things to let you know you are appreciated and they are happy to have you here. Maintenance is done in a quick response time. The buildings and grounds are kept up. Glad we made this choice after looking at so many other "newer" apartments.
