The GAI business center is located close to Orlando's Central Business District in the first downtown private office development to meet nationally recognized environmental sustainability standards. Built to qualify for LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification, the seven-floor GIA Building, with ceiling-to-floor windows on every level and vertically integrated parking, is situated in the South Eola neighborhood. Designed by Baker Barrios Architects, its 'green' technology targets energy and water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, plus improved indoor ventilation, temperature/lighting control and reduced air pollution. South Eola is close to the Central Business District and Interstate 4. Nearby Thornton Park has high-end restaurants, fashion boutiques and apartments. The Orlando metro area has a multi-billion dollar technology industry, the Central Florida Research Park, one of the largest convention complexes in the US and is the base for 150 international companies. Walt Disney World is just one of several recreational resorts nearby.
