In October 1999, Meridian acquired the Bethesda Metro Center complex, comprised of a 381-room Hyatt Regency Hotel, a 366,042 square foot office building and a 1,330-space parking garage in a prime downtown, Bethesda, MD location adjacent to the Bethesda Metro Station.
Meridian was able to convert the property into an “A” property in an “A+” location. From 1999 through 2008 Meridian increased the complex’s occupancy from 85% to 95%, NOI by 87%, rents by 41% and parking revenue by 75%. Meridian orchestrated three separate equity recapitalizations and one exit which generated substantial profits over the life of the investment.

This Privacy Statement applies to information and data you may provide to us or we otherwise collect from you via the www.tmgdc.com website (the “Site”). By using the Site, or voluntarily providing your information to us, you consent to the collection and use of all information as set forth in this Privacy Statement. If you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Statement please do not provide us with any information.
This Privacy Statement does not apply to any information that may be collected by Meridian other than via the Site (such as through any offline method). This statement also does not apply to information collected by third party services, websites, advertisements or applications associated with, linked to or otherwise accessible from the Site. In this regard, note that Meridian uses a third party service provider, Intralinks, Inc. (“IntraLinks”), to host and manage access to certain Meridian fund investor information provided by Meridian, and such information resides at an IntraLinks website (the “IntraLinks Site”). You may be providing certain personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information to IntraLinks through the IntraLinks Site. The information collected or received by such third parties (including IntraLinks through the IntraLinks Site) is subject to such third party’s own privacy policies and under no circumstances is Meridian responsible or liable for such third party’s compliance therewith.

We do not engage in the collection of personally identifiable information about your online activities over time and across third party websites or online services. Accordingly, we do not currently process or comply with any web browser’s “do not track” signal or other mechanisms that provide consumers with the ability to exercise choice regarding the collection of personally identifiable information about your online activities over time and across third party websites. However, we may from time to time allow third party companies to collect certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit our Site which, through “tracking technologies,” can be combined with non-personally identifiable information during your visits to other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services likely to be of greater interest to you. These companies typically use a cookie or a third party web beacon to collect this information. To learn more about this behavioral advertising practice, you can visit www.networkadvertising.org, and you may opt out of receiving cookies from third party advertising networks by going to the Network Advertising Initiative’s cookie opt out page, which can be found at http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp.
We strive to maintain the accuracy of any personally identifiable information that may be collected from you, and will use our commercially reasonable efforts to respond promptly to update our database when you tell us the information in our database is not accurate. It is your responsibility to ensure that such information is accurate, complete and up-to-date. You may obtain from us, by mail or email, the information in our records.
