Having lived at Legacy at Meridian for 18 months, I have had an exceptional experience. I chose the complex because of the decent rates for the area as well as proximity to my workplace and living here has exceeded expectations. The management and maintenance staff are very professional, personable, and proactive. The facilities are clean, modern, and reliable. Neighbors are friendly and diverse (mix of singles, couples, roommates, and families) and the complex is quiet at night. Amenities are great (clubhouse, fitness room, social events on a regular basis). Location-wise, I-40 is a minute away, Southpoint is 5 minutes, downtown Durham is less than 15 and Raleigh is 20. I highly recommend the complex and look forward to staying here as long as I can.
Not only is this a beautiful property, but I cannot say enough wonderful things about the maintenance team. Any little problem I have, they are so prompt with assisting. I love living here. The office staff is so friendly. :)
I recently relocated for a job in Chapel Hill and looked at over 20 apartments in the Chapel Hill, Durham and Morrisville area. After 2 weeks of searching, I found Legacy at Meridian and it has truly been a blessing to live here. The apartment is spacious, VERY clean, and quiet. I have wonderful neighbors, the grounds are beautiful and safe, there are walking trails all around and the staff has been very friendly and accommodating. So far it's been a great experience.
I lived in 1520 Magnolia for 2 years and I am truly surprised I lasted that long. My apartment and the amenities were excellent and all for a decent price, however the nature of this neighborhood and my experience as a tenant with respects to management were horrendous. For the most part, they were more than pleasant (whenever I went in to pick up packages or attend functions), but some of their behaviors were disgusting. I received complaints about some of the most ridiculous things: 1. My car had a window broken into in a different neighborhood. I immediately filed a claim with my insurance department, but after about a week since it wasn't fixed I received a notice that my car would be TOWED because it "made people think it was a bad neighborhood" EXCUSE ME?! I pay rent here and you want to tow my vehicle? I am the victim here! 2. We were asked to move our personal grill and to utilize the ones near the pool. There were at least 3 other tenants, one including the courtesy officer who also had a grill and his was actually CLOSER to the property than ours. 3. When we were moving out, there were many trumped up charges in an attempt to get us to pay more than our security deposit. 4. We received a letter requesting that we walk our dog in a different area, as somehow they determined that our dog's urine was the reason why the grass was yellowing. Our dog did not use the bathroom in this area. The first year was pleasant; all 4 of these incidents happened over the second years. I have lived in 2 other apartment complexes and have not dealt with any of the things I dealt with here and I was very glad to leave. Maybe the staff has changed since 2013 when I left, but dealing with Tina was an absolute nightmare in my final year.
Moving into the Legacy at Meridian has been a wonderful experience. The staff, both the office and the maintenance staffs, have been awesome. They are on top of everything and are very responsive. This is in such contrast to the complex I left. They are the best!!!!
