Elevated Third Launches New Drupal Website for Aimco


Denver interactive agency Elevated Third launched the new online home of Apartment Investment and Management Company (AIMCO) a Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) and one of the largest owner/operators of apartment homes in the country. The new site went live on December 19, 2011.

Elevated Third used the latest version Drupal, the open source content management system, to deliver a powerful and integrated web solution. The site is easy to use and Elevated Third fully integrated the site with Multifamily Information and Transactions Standards (MITS). The MITS maintains consistent data for each available property, allowing for accurate and efficient property search. Visitors to the site can take advantage of several advanced search options to find the apartment home that is right for them.

Using Drupal’s user management, Aimco is able to leverage and moderate content created across their organization, resulting in a website that is consistently fresh and responsive. This is the most complex and elegant user configuration Elevated Third has delivered to date.

In addition, the new Aimco website has comprehensive information for potential and current investors. Visitors to the site can find current and historical stock information, financial reports, participate in quarterly earnings calls, and get notifications regarding new events and when corporate documents become available.

Other features of the site include a job and career search section, a press room where media and other visitors can learn about company news, and a corporate citizenship section highlighting Aimco’s philanthropy and the company’s connection with the communities they serve.

The next step for Aimco will be to work with Elevated Third to build the Spanish-language version of the new site and more fully integrate affordable housing into the property search feature.

Elevated Third is excited to work with a client who not only understands the web, but allows the interactive agency to show what Drupal can do. Jeff Calderone, one of the principals at Elevated Third, said of Aimco, “They are a client who can really take advantage of the things that Drupal does well. They get a lot of value out of the box but other parts were extensively customized. This is what separates Drupal from its competitors.”
