City of Sunrise

As part of its growth momentum, the City of Sunrise has often turned to SRS for master-planning, architecture, and interior design. The firm's projects have helped to improve residents' quality of life with the addition of new facilities and retrofitting of aging ones, including parks, recreation centers, and service quarters for police and fire departments. Likewise, SRS has served the private sector for projects ranging from retail shop customization to preschools.

Established in 1961, Sunrise Golf Village was officially renamed the City of Sunrise during the 1970s, when the town experienced a building boom. Through annexation, the city expanded west to the Everglades, eventually incorporating 18 square miles. As development of new housing units began to taper off in the 1980s, the City Commission was prompted to blaze new trails, rebuilding infrastructure and reaching out to corporations to establish a healthy economic climate.

By the 1990s, more than 140 corporations were based in the city. Sunrise now claims the largest corporate office park in South Florida. Most recent statistics report a population of 85,000 Sunrise residents, making it the ninth largest city in Broward County. Households are nearly equally divided between single- and multi-family dwelling units.

BB&T Center, serving as home to the Florida Panthers hockey team, is regarded as a highly desirable venue hosting top-name entertainment and special events, and is the second largest such arena and showcase in the nation. Additionally, when the Sawgrass Mills shopping and entertainment mall opened, it became the second-most visited attraction in the state, after Disney World, visited by millions of national and international tourists each year. SRS has been involved in 20-plus enterprise designs and buildouts at Sawgrass Mall, including the most recent, Zegna, as the Mall continues to evolve and grow.
