The Sunrise Trailer Park is a 16-unit mobile home park located in Charlottesville's Woolen Mills neighborhood that has been redeveloped by Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville.[1]

City Council approved a rezoning to Planned Unit Development in November 2009.[2] The action allowed Habitat to design a mixed income neighborhood with a maximum of 60 residential units, with up to 12,800 square feet of non-residential use.

Ground was broken on March 15, 2011.[3] In 2011, Habitat sought an amendment to the PUD to allow it to expand the site and add six more units.[1] The Planning Commission approved the addition on May 10, 2011 and City Council approved it in June.[4] The first units were sold in the fall of 2011 and the first residents began to occupy the development in December 2011.[5] Nine families moved in on July 7, 2012.[6]
