Reindeer911 over at the Sims 2 Community Forums received a Survey from EA today asking what features they would like to see in an Apartment expansion.  They were kind enough to post the important stuff from the survey:

Please take the time to read the following concept description for a potential Sims 2 Expansion Pack.

Your Sims are moving into a brand-new apartment, and their lives will never be the same! Adventure, fun, and drama await them as they move into the perfect apartment, whether it’s a spacious loft, a cozy one bedroom for couples, or a multi-bedroom flat with roommates. Meet and socialize with new neighbors to form networks, become friends with the landlord to decrease rent, and make friends that can help advance their career or lovelife. Will they mingle in coffee shops, take in a show at the local comedy club or hit the streets to learn from the breakdancers? Whatever new lifestyle they choose, your Sims will face all-new challenges, from getting along with roommates to dealing with noisy neighbors and meddlesome landlords. Take your Sims out of the serene suburbs and into apartment life with this new expansion pack!
