    How friendly are you with building management? It wouldn't surprise me if they disappeared one day. I know yoga mats used to get stolen in my old building, not sure if it was management/security or other residents.

    If it were me, I'd consider a toast rack and wheel them down and back if it meant that much to you.

    Considering just getting the extra plates I need to deadlift and farmer walking the loaded dumbbells to the gym can add more plates when I get down there.

    Ha, sure, consider it an extended farmer's walk. Great for your forearms as well if you pinch the 45lb plates with your fingers

    Bonus points if you keep holding them in the elevator, can't put them down, that's cheating!

    Haha that's exactly what I intend on doing. I'm hoping I can work it out with them so I can walk all the way into the gym without putting them down to flash my monthly pass
