Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville, in partnership with the Charlottesville Community Design Center (CCDC) organized an open ideas competition for the transformation of Sunrise Trailer Court into a vibrant, attractive urban community called Sunrise Park. In communities where Habitat is accustomed to building single-family homes, the shortage of affordable land requires Habitat affiliates to build at a higher density. The Urban Habitats Competition is searching innovative models that provide sustainable, affordable multifamily housing.
