DC Apartments with Rooftop Pools

Your Pool Policy Questions Answered

In order to maintain a safe and enjoyable rooftop pool environment for all of our residents and guests, it is imperative that the following Pool Admission Policies and Pool Rules are followed. We know some of these rules may trigger questions, and we’d like to answer these for you! Below, you will find the reasoning behind some of the essential 2M rooftop pool rules. For a full list of our policies, see the official Pool Admission Policies and Pool Rules page here.

“Why can’t I have glass by the pool or on the roof?” 

Glass presents a safety issue for anyone in the surrounding area. In order to prevent breakage and injury, it is prohibited. Broken glass in or near the pool could force us to close and drain the pool, a process that could take 72 hours or more to complete – you don’t want to be the person responsible for this!

“Why can’t I have food by the pool?” 

If any food were to get into the pool, the entire pool would need to be drained. Again, this is a process that could take 72 hours or more to complete. We know our residents enjoy having everyday access to the pool, so preventing this process is critical!

“I live here, why do I have to sign in and who is signing me in?” 

In order to monitor the crowd at the 2M pool, we want to ensure that only our residents and their guests are checking in at the pool. Each leaseholder is limited to 2 guests at any one time, and by signing in, we can make sure that this is the case. Our pool attendant is an extension of management and is present to keep everyone happy and safe.

“Why Can’t I smoke on the roof deck?” 

In order to maintain our LEED Gold Certification, 2M is an entirely non-smoking building. Smoking is prohibited in and on the property, and within 25 feet of the building. This rule applies to all tenants, occupants, and guests of tenants.

“Why do I have to listen to my music on a low volume?” 

The rooftop pool is for everyone to enjoy. Loud music of any kind may disrupt other residents or residents of neighboring buildings. Maintaining a low volume will ensure that all residents can enjoy their own music if they wish to do so.

“Why can’t I dunk, dive, or partake in horseplay inside the pool?” 

Any of these activities are subject to causing injury to yourself or anyone in the vicinity. Preventing these activities will keep everyone safe without a lifeguard on duty.
