This past weekend, 2M Street hosted the Men Against Breast Cancer for their second annual Pink and Blue Rooftop Soiree. We had a wonderful time and wanted to share a few photos from the event. If you missed the last blog post about Men Against Breast Cancer, you can learn more about them and what they do here. A very special thanks goes out to Brian J. Silver for involving us in the event, we truly enjoyed being a part of the wonderful work you do.
The doors of 2M Street are officially 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 Street will be like. Without further ado, please meet 2M Concierge Andre Hughes!
What made you want to come work at 2M?
My friend told me that WC Smith was a great company to work for. She was extremely happy and enthusiastic about 2M and I thought it would be a great idea for me to apply.
What do you like to do when you’re not working?
When I am not working I spend lots of time doing different things such as researching census numbers, reading, studying geography and history which was my favorite subject in school. I also listen to lots of music from R&B,dance-pop,Rock,Funk and Folk music. I also love traveling when I can. My favorite cities are Chicago, Atlanta and San Diego.
If you only had 1 day in DC, what would be your top 3 must-do activities?
If I had one day in DC the three things I would want to do would be to visit The White House, The National Archives and the National Zoo in Adams Morgan/Woodley Park.
If 2M Street were a song, which one would it be?
If 2M Street was a song it would be Tina Turner’s “Simply the Best”!
What do you think draws residents to 2M now?
I think the amazing architecture will draw people in to see our building, as well as WC Smith’s reputation for being a company who caters to the greater good of the community.
What green feature at 2M is your favorite?
My favorite would be the Zen Garden on the rooftop, fed by the rain-collecting water cistern.
What is your favorite community amenity?
My favorite 2M Street amenities are the fitness center and the swimming pool on the rooftop.
Describe your perfect day at 2M?
A perfect day at 2M would include welcoming a large amount of moves-in’s and some very satisfied residents!
If you had to describe 2M in three words, what would they be?
Three words to describe 2M would be Elegant, Comfortable and Affordable.

Happy Halloween from 2M!
Ah, Halloween…a celebration of Fall, sugary sweets and all things spooky; but where did it all start? According to the History Channel, to origin of Halloween may date back as far as 2,000 years:
[box] Straddling the line between fall and winter, plenty and paucity, life and death, Halloween is a time of celebration and superstition. It is thought to have originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off roaming ghosts. In the eighth century, Pope Gregory III designated November 1 as a time to honor all saints and martyrs; the holiday, All Saints’ Day, incorporated some of the traditions of Samhain. The evening before was known as All Hallows’ Eve and later Halloween. Over time, Halloween evolved into a secular, community-based event characterized by child-friendly activities such as trick-or-treating. [/box]
Today, we approach Halloween with lighter spirits, but take our festive activities and costumes almost as seriously! So this year when our Marketing Director Holli got her hands on these little guys, we knew we had to do something special with them. With Halloween right around the corner and some thrilling news to announce, we created this video:
But we didn’t stop there! We wanted the fun to continue, so we asked our friends, family and followers to record themselves doing their best Thriller moves. Whoever provided the moves that thrilled us the most would be rewarded with a $100 gift card! You can check out some of the scary good submissions here.
To keep the treats coming, we are also releasing a spooky sneak peek of our Skyline Cafe. This fabulous common space is located adjacent to our rooftop pool and is an ideal alternative to entertaining in your luxury apartment.
We hope you enjoy our treats; have a safe and happy Halloween!
