Wasatch Property Management entrusted LeaseLabs with their corporate and property websites since 2010.
In late 2016, LeaseLabs launched Wasatch's 3rd portfolio design iteration, incorporating modern property search functionality, breathing life into their corporate site UI elements, and redefining how renters search and discover local apartments on a corporate management site.
Along with a new corporate website, Wasatch's portfolio of 60+ property websites were revamped on a Scrolling Page Architecture platform, creating a seamless scrolling experience for its users. The single page, dynamically loading websites load all interior pages upfront with a single page-load, and register unique page visits as the user scrolls down the site - allowing users to absorb all the property's content without having to hit page navigation links.
