The New Year is here, which means it is time for a fresh set of goals, otherwise known as, “New Year Resolutions”. The challenge with the new year is finding the time and motivation to move down that checklist.
To help you out with the time and convenience piece, we have curated a list of 5 New Year Resolutions you can accomplish right from the comfort of your own apartment community.
The number one New Year Resolution on everyone’s list is fitness. What separates 2M residents from the rest of the pack is that you have access to a free, fully equipped, fitness center right below your feet! Any fitness goal you’re hoping to reach this year is attainable with an endless list of fitness equipment including, two Peloton bikes, yoga mats, multiple thread mills, dumbbells, squat machines, and more!
Take your fitness goals seriously this New Year inside of our 2M fitness center.
And when you’re not working out, you can work on your jump-shot on our basketball court located right beneath the fitness center.
2) BE MORE SOCIAL
The year tends to move very quickly. If you’re working for a living like everyone else, it’s easy to lose track of your social life. Don’t let that become you in 2020; at 2M, we have multiple areas in the building that are perfect for hosting an event or two. These include our Skyline rooftop lounge area, resident clubroom, television room, and a few outdoor spaces. It’s as easy as going to the front desk to reserve your date and time.
So, throw that viewing party, Super Bowl Party, Paint and Sip, or whatever else you have in mind to take your social life up a notch in the new year.
3) ENJOY THE OUTDOORS
If one of your New Year Resolutions is to get out more, we have the perfect amenity spaces for that too! If you’re not enjoying the ideal weekend over-looking the beauty of DC on our rooftop this Spring and Summer, then you’re doing something wrong!
If you’re looking for more of a quiet outdoor space, our courtyard area is a prime location for an excellent book while enjoying your favorite drink. Remember that enjoying the outdoors doesn’t have to mean hiking or running, sometimes it’s merely getting outside of your four walls.
The most consistent theme with a new year is trying new things. Things you would have never thought of trying before. At 2M, we host an experience that a lot of people are curious about, but have never experienced. This experience is yoga. If you are looking to expand your boundaries this year and focus on self-growth, we challenge you to try one of our weekly yoga classes offered on the 2M basketball court.
Be the person who is open to new things and actually takes the step to make new things a reality, instead of the one who always wondered.
5) SWIM MORE
Even though we are in January, the warm season is not as far you think. Sooner than later, the 2M pool will be open, and the months from there will blink by until it’s closed again. Remember last year when you said you want to get into the water more next year? That year is this one.
Find some time to enjoy a sweet dip from the comfort of your apartment community on our rooftop pool this year.
The Summer season is in full swing, and off to an amazing start. Now we welcome July. Along with the rising temperatures, it’s time to take your current apartment experience up to the next level, and truly tap into one of the biggest reasons you decided to live at 2M… The rooftop! The views are stunning, the amenities are plentiful, and the overall vibe is unlike any other. All the elements you need to have a winning rooftop season is right at your fingertips at 2M.
Here are some quick rooftop tips to help maximize your rooftop experience at 2M.
Reserve the fun ahead of time
While the pool is not available to reserve for private parties, the Skyline Café is the perfect location to book your next Summer event. The Café has an extended kitchen area ideal for any of your catering orders. It is also adjacent to a lounge area with a cozy fireplace and television.
Apart from enjoying the Summer is being able to take a weekend to enjoy the closeness of your family and friends. What better place to do it than your magnificent rooftop.

Reserve your location today!
Experience the rooftop at night
(Don’t forget the rooftop is open until 12 AM)
There’s nothing wrong with some fun in the sun, but having access to the rooftop after the sun goes down opens up an entirely new night experience. Enjoy a nice relaxing summer evening on the rooftop of while you look over the bright lights of DC. You could also enjoy a nice night swim while being next to the grilling station for easy accessibility for an evening bite to eat.
Perfect for an outdoor workout
You don’t have to wait for the next rooftop fitness class to happen in order to have an amazing workout up-top. The rooftop is always a great change of pace from your typical workout in the gym. It’s something about being outside that adds a different level to your fitness experience. Get up before work, and grab an early morning workout as you watch the sunrise. Or unwind after work with an evening session as the sun starts to go down. Either way, we’re proud to be able to truly offer an elevated overall fitness experience on the 2M rooftop.
Your rooftop season deserves to be celebrated correctly. Take advantage of these 2M rooftop tips, and open up your Summer possibilities.
The official kick-off to the Summer season at 2M is right around the corner with a resident appreciation pool party this Saturday May 2nd! As we head into our first full Summer season, we wanted to answer a few questions that may come up; here’s a brief pool FAQ:
Is the pool heated?
Yes, it is heated! This will allow us open the pool in early May and keep it open through September. During the warm summer months, however, we won’t be using the heater.
How deep is the pool?
The pool is four feet deep.
How late is the pool open?
The pool is open until midnight each night. While we hope you enjoy the expanded pool hours, please be mindful of your neighbors and keep noise to a minimum in the evening hours.
Am I allowed to reserve the pool?
Unfortunately, residents cannot reserve the pool for private functions. While we may, as a community, occasionally host poolside events for non-residents, the pool is designed as an amenity for use by the entire community. By allowing it to be reserved on an individual basis, too many residents would be deprived of its use.
What can I reserve on the rooftop?
The Skyline Café can be reserved for private events! Please use BuildingLink to submit your reservation request. Fees do apply to renting the Skyline Café and those details can also be found on Buildinglink.
Can I bring food and drink to the pool?
Feel free to bring food and drink to the pool, but please no glass containers. We don’t want anyone to get hurt around the pool. Also, please remember to dispose of all trash before you leave for the day.
How can I keep my beverages chilled? Is there an ice machine?
Yes, there is an ice machine located in the elevator lobby just outside of the Skyline Café.
How many guests am I allowed to bring to the pool?
Each apartment is permitted two guest at the pool. Please remember that both you and your guests should be wearing your wristbands at all times.
Any other questions we can answer for you? We’d be happy to help if you want to comment below or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks and enjoy!
A quick word from your favorite Property Manager Doug:
Currently we have 8 teams that have signed up for the building 2V2 basketball league and I wanted to follow up to see if anyone else would like to be added to the list. In order to qualify to play in this outstanding league you must be able to tomahawk dunk and rain 3 pointers like Larry Bird. If you do not have someone to play with we will team you up with another individual that is looking for a team. I will close the list on Friday and send out team assignments and game times next week. I am anticipating league play to start on Thursday February 12th. so get your Reebok pumps and headbands ready. If you have suggestions on the length of games and the format for league play please send me your ideas.
Boot camp will take place tomorrow night at 6:30PM in the basketball gym. No sign up is necessary so bring your drive and determination and we will provide the sweat and tears.

When it comes to choosing the perfect apartment, we know you have your reasons. We’re here to give you just a few more.
1. 3 Words: Heated Rooftop Pool
If you are going to have a rooftop pool, shouldn’t you be able to use it as much as possible? Keep swimming laps well into the fall in 2M’s sparkling pool, or just enjoy the breathtaking view of the Capitol and Washington Monument.
If the weather outside is frightful, no worries. We’ve got you covered … literally! Our Skyline Café is completely enclosed and has Apple TV, a chef’s kitchen, but most importantly, floor-to-ceiling windows so you can still enjoy Washington DC’s stunning skyline!
2. Green Living
You care about the environment, so do we! We took the extra steps to build to LEED Gold standards. You can read all about that HERE.
What does that mean for you? It means lower utility bills. More importantly, it means we make it easy for you 2Make a difference. (See what we did there?)
3. Smart Pricing
Moving is a pain! If you find a place you love, you sure as heck don’t want to give it up next year because the landlord increased your rent sky high!
We like you and want you to stay in our community! So, 2M has a promise for you.
First, select your lease term anywhere from 6-24 months. When it’s time for you to renew, we guarantee that the maximum rent increase you will get is 5%!!!
We are so serious about this promise we are including it in your lease. We should also mention that 2M isn’t going to charge you silly things like move-in fees or amenity fees. So you can take that promise–and all your extra savings–to the bank!
4. Transportation Options for Days
Whatever your preferred method of transportation is, it will be close at hand at 2M.
-Ride the Metro? The Red Line stops just 2 blocks from our front door.
-Is two-wheeling more your thing? We have a bike room in our secured garage and a Capital Bikeshare station right around the corner!
-Speaking of our garage, if you do have a car, we offer reserved spots in our garage and we even have electric car charging stations! (We told you we are serious about the Green thing!)
-Prefer to let someone else do the driving? The bus stop is right outside our front door! We also have an exclusive deal with Green Tomato Cars (the eco-friendly option to Uber).
5. Live With A Celebrity
Okay, not really … but she is the cutest bulldog ever! Plus, she’s InstaFamous.
Meet Emmy, 2M’s very own community puppy ambassador. You can meet her in the leasing office and play with her in our internal dog park. She can’t wait to meet you and your pet!
On that note, we should mention, 2M is VERY pet friendly! We welcome your dog or your feline friends. While there is a one-time pet fee, you will NEVER have to pay pet rent here!
Still not convinced? Come take a tour!
We know 2M is the place you should call home!
