What’s New at 2M Street

Our common areas are shaping up nicely, and soon enough we’ll be shooting hoops on the half court, working up a sweat in the fab fitness center, and socializing with neighbors in the club room.

Meet the 2M Street Team: Kaitlyn

The leasing office will soon be open, and we are proud to say that 2M is staffed with some of the friendliest, most helpful people in all of DC!  The 2M Street team has been hard at work creating a community, but we asked them to take a few moments to introduce themselves and to give an insider perspective on what life at 2M will be like.  Without further ado, we proudly introduce…

Kaitlyn Luper: Assistant Property Manager

Meet the 2M Street Team: Kaitlyn Luper


Kaitlyn, what was the path that led you here, either personally or professionally?
I worked with another management company for 3 years and was looking for more involvement and growth. I love working with people and helping them choose the perfect home. It is a chance to make a huge impact in people’s lives.

What made you want to come work for WC Smith and 2M Street?
WC Smith has a great reputation in the city for making a difference in people’s lives. Their outreach is amazing and I jumped at a chance to be part of such a great company. This will be my first experience with a brand new building, starting from the ground up. I wanted a chance to do something a little different then what I was used to within the industry, so 2M seemed like the perfect opportunity to branch out.

What do you like to do when you’re not working?
I enjoy reading, shopping, and playing with my dog.

Where do you see NoMa in 5 years?
I think the growth in NoMa will be amazing. It will be the place people want to live when moving in the city!

What do you think draws residents to 2M Street and NoMa now?
NoMa is an up and coming neighborhood. Residents will get to experience and see the growth of the area, as well as be a part of it first-hand.  2M Street will have every amenity our residents need and want, whether it is here in the building or within walking distance of the property.

If you only had 1 day in DC, what would be your top 3 musts?
Visiting the monuments, Arlington National Cemetery, and the National Archives.

What is your favorite green feature at 2M?
The rainwater harvesting system is impressive and unique.

What is your favorite 2M amenity?
The Dog Park!

Describe your perfect day at 2M.
It would start with a workout in the Fitness Center, and then I would take my dog for his workout at the Dog Park.  Afterwards, I would take in a movie in the Theater Room, then head out to eat at one of the great NoMa restaurants.  Later in the evening, I would invite some friends to socialize in the Rooftop Skyline Cafe.

Why would your pet love to live here?
My dog would feel like a true resident here! The dog park would be his fitness center, Emmy (the resident puppy) would be his first friend and contact in the office, and he would have an endless amount of other pets to play with.

Which 3 words best describe 2M?
Modern, convenient, and affordable.
