Goals

Accessible designEasy to edit and update

Quayside Wayzata approached High Monkey in the Summer of 2015 with a need to design and build a public website for their new high-end apartment complex in hopes of increasing sales and getting new tenants moved in as soon as possible to fill up the complex.

The Quayside Wayzata team wanted a website that properly showcases the complex's luxurious amenities and features, as well as all of the nearby businesses, in order to appeal to possible tenants. They also stressed a need for the website to be responsive, accessible, and have an overall look that was clean and modern.

Challenges

There were several challenges that needed to be addressed, including:

  • Creating an automatic image carousel for the ‘Photo Gallery’ page
  • Capability of secure forms for residence application and background check that website visitors can complete and submit online.
