Welcome to Sunrise - a South Florida city with a history of turning ambition into accomplishment. Sunrise is known for its excellent location, pro-business attitude and unsurpassed amenities. In the past 20 years alone, more than $200 billion worth of corporate investment and nearly 4 million square feet of business facilities have taken root in Sunrise. Today, more than 30,000 people are employed in our Business and Entertainment District.

Located between Miami and West Palm Beach, Sunrise is an exciting corporate, shopping and entertainment destination. The City seamlessly blends its corporate and hometown identities, offering exceptional amenities to business owners and residents alike. 

There are very few communities of similar size, anywhere in the United States, that welcome the millions of visitors that we do here in Sunrise, or that can boast the amount of regional assets and corporate investment found in our wonderful City.

We take great pride in our record for bringing in projects that attract major corporate investment, create job opportunities for our residents, and attract tourism to Sunrise.

In the 4 square miles of Sunrise known as our Sawgrass Business and Entertainment District, the aggregate existing property value is over $5 billion.

This district is anchored by the 22,000-seat BB&T Center arena; Sawgrass Mills Mall, with over 40 million annual visitors; and South Florida’s largest corporate office park, the  612-acre Sawgrass International Corporate Park.

Sunrise knows what relocating corporations look for in a host City. Our elected officials and professional staff are dedicated to meeting those needs - before, during and after a move.

Please browse this website for additional information, and contact the Sunrise Economic Development Office to see how we can help you relocate your company to - or start your company in - the City of Sunrise. There are also tremendous opportunities for redevelopment outside of the Business and Entertainment District, in our City's original neighborhoods. Please visit for more information.
