The City of Sunrise was incorporated in 1961 by Norman Johnson – an innovative developer whose model homes attracted buyers to what was then the remote western edge of Broward County in southeast Florida.
Originally known as Sunrise Golf Village, the City had a population of 4,300 and comprised just 1.75 square miles by 1967. Then, during the 1970s – as Broward County began to push west – the City experienced its first real growth.
Today, Sunrise boasts its own flourishing job market and has emerged as the county’s leader in commerce, having developed the largest corporate office park in South Florida. From humble beginnings, Sunrise has also grown into a sophisticated city of culture – offering residents and visitors abundant opportunities to experience art, theatre, fine dining and first-class entertainment.
