Hey there -

I'm moving to Greenville in June to start residency, and I won't have a chance to head out and look at places beforehand...so far what I've found on the internet, I've found two places of interest:
Meridian Park Welcome to Meridian Park - Greenville, NC Apartment Home Living
The Pointe at Wimbledon The Pointe at Wimbledon

Anyone have any feedback on those? Or other places I should consider? I'd prefer not to have to fight much congestion on the way to the hospital, so I'm a little concerned about how far away from the hospital the Wimbledon would be....

I lived at Wimbledon and it was pretty nice, but the rents there would be comparable to buying a small townhouse in this area. I remember paying $625 a month for one bedroom. Meridian Park would be closer to the hospital but Wimbledon is in a better area. Treybrooke is right beside the hospital, and there are a couple other nice complexes near the hospital (can't remember the names).

Nice apartments are kinda hard to come by in Greenville...I guess it's because of the availability of inexpensive townhouses and condos. I wish I had bought something sooner (at the time I didn't know i'd be living here this long).

I had a friend who lived at Wimbledon while going to undergrad at ECU and he liked it. However, as you stated it is across town and the 5 PM traffic from the hospital clogs up Arlington for the most part all the way to at least Greenville Blvd. I've heard people say it can take them over 20 minutes to get home.

I lived in Meridian Park for one year and it is definitely close to the hospital, easily 5 minutes or less. Sometimes the entrance can get blocked if the rush hour traffic backs up from the Arlington/Memorial light intersection. Meridian Park can be kind of expensive for what you get. As Lithuania points out it can be more cost-effective to rent/buy a townhome/condo instead of renting an apartment.

A lot of the med students/residents stay at Treybrooke which is behind the medical school. I never stayed there but people I knew who did thought it was fine.

Also, there are a lot of condos/town homes along Spring Forest Road which you should take a look at.

Anyway, good luck with your upcoming residency!

We are currently staying at The Pointe at Wimbledon apartments while we build our house. We've had no problems as of yet and the place is just great. We're not used to apartment living and we feel like we are staying at a resort while we build. It's nice and quiet with lots of amenities. It's also mostly professionals, which I like a lot! I also like the side of town it's on. It's not in the high crime areas like Meridian and many others. I work at the hospital and the drive is not bad for me at all. In the morning it takes me 5-10 minutes to get to work and at 5:00 it can take up to 15 minutes on higher traffic days, but usually not.

Hope this helps!

Lisa
