Howard Hughes
Multi-Use Manageability

The Howard Hughes Corporation turned to Sagepath to develop a unified design solution and consolidate multiple property sites across the country into a single CMS platform. Sagepath responded with a modular design system with interchangeable components to create a consistent design system, while providing each property the autonomy to customize their site.


Howard Hughes needed more control of their digital assets and content while still allowing for local, customized content for multiple properties that had their own individual CMS.


Sagepath leveraged AEM to design and develop reusable components that could be used across the board, reducing CMS maintenance costs and creating a more unified brand presence online.


The finished product provided a scalable platform with standardized, reusable templates and components that were used to deliver unique design experiences for five multi-purpose community sites in AEM within 7 months. 

The Results

A global component library allows new properties to access pre-approved elements while accommodating for new, custom components to significantly cut down on development time and costs.


reduction in new site build costs

Costs Savings

increase in direct search sessions


increase in first-month traffic

Website Traffic

To provide visitors with an easy way to navigate each property, we created a tool bar that provides an app-like feel. The tool bar is prominently featured on desktop and mobile, enabling users to quickly access shopping, dining, and special features for each location.

Flexibility to Grow

Unique branding can be applied for each property without changing the component structure, enabling content editors to easily add and update content. For Howard Hughes this means they can continue to expand their portfolio without relying on design and development support to recreate the site every time.
