Hi friends, Emmy here! Before long, I’ll be moving in to my new pad at 2M Street. I can’t wait to meet all of my new neighbors (humans and pets), but since we’re still a few weeks away from welcoming our first residents, I wanted to give you all an idea of what I’m up to from day to day.
While 2M is being completed, I have been spending my days at the WC Smith corporate office. While there, you can usually find me…
Helping Holli with paperwork:
Visiting with my friends:
Contributing to important meetings:
Relaxing with my furry friends:
Giving out hugs and kisses:
…and of course, naps:
I’ve made so many great friends here and I can’t wait to show them my new apartment and building! Once I move in to 2M street, I’ll be spending my days in the leasing office with Doug and the rest of the team. In the leasing office, I’ll be able to hang in my dog house, 2Emmy Street (see above) with my stuffed animal friends. Throughout the day, I hope to see my neighbors and potential residents popping in to say hello! I never say no to a belly rub or a healthy snack!
As a pet-friendly community, 2M Street will have plenty of four-legged roommates for me to play with. Our private dog park, located within our enclosed courtyard, will be the perfect place to meet up with my friends for some afternoon fresh air and exercise. While many residents will be pet-owners, there are sure to be some who are too busy, cannot afford a pet of their own (we can be a little high maintenance, you know), or simply haven’t found their furry soulmate yet. I’m excited to spend some time with my neighbors in the leasing office or at the front desk, and Doug and I might even take them for a walk around the courtyard! After all, everyone deserves a little puppy love.
When dinner time comes, I’ll retire to my apartment with Doug. Some of my favorite things to do at home are taking a warm, relaxing bath, enjoying a peanut butter-filled Kong for dessert, then snuggling up for some guilty pleasure TV!
Until we meet at 2M Street, you can follow my day to day activities on Instagram and Twitter; my name is @2Mpup, of course! You can also take a look at these Frequently Asked Questions to get to know me better. Thanks for putting your day on paws to read about little old me; I hope you have a very yappy day! Oh, what was that? You want one more photo? Puppy selfie it is!
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…
Albina Kuznetsova, Leasing Consultant
What made you want to come work at 2M?
I always wanted to work for a company with a great reputation; this is why I chose WC Smith. I am very excited to work in one of the most beautiful buildings in NoMa with a close knit team and the cutest puppy social media has ever seen.
What do you like to do when you’re not working?
When I am not working I still like to stay busy and entertained. I enjoy attending concerts, festivals, new restaurants and of course shopping. I also love outdoor activities.
Where do you see NoMa in 5 years?
NoMa is an emerging neighborhood with a bright future. It is currently in the process of developing into one of DC’s most vibrant neighborhoods with great infrastructure, restaurants and shops.
If you only had 1 day in DC, what would be your top 3 musts?
1. Get a pedicab and see the sites of DC
2. Go to as many museums as I can, because Washington, DC is the only city where you can visit the majority of the (Smithsonian) museums for FREE
3. I would definitely see the White House and take tons of pictures
What is your favorite green feature at 2M?
My favorite green amenity at 2M is the electric car charging station.
What is your favorite 2M amenity?
One of my favorite amenities is the rooftop pool where residents can enjoy the most amazing and breathtaking views.
Describe your perfect day at 2M:
My perfect day at 2M starts with a cup of coffee from the Resident Café. I would then take Emmy for a walk to our beautiful private dog park. Afterwards, I would invite my friends over to BBQ in our beautiful grilling area, but after having all that fun I would need a vigorous workout in our state-of-the-art gym. My day would conclude with watching a romantic comedy with my boyfriend in the Theatre Room.
Why would your pet love to live here?
My pet would love to live at 2M because he can have so much fun interacting with other dogs at the dog park.
