With our Tribute Portfolio accommodations at The Celeste Hotel, you will find yourself a stone’s throw away from the biggest research park in the Sunshine State.  The Central Florida Research Park, hosts more than 1,000 acres of innovation and industry closely tied to UCF.

Introducing the Central Florida Research Park

Established in 1978 as a partnership between UCF and Orange County, the Central Florida Research Park now hosts some 145 companies and about 10,000 employees. Businesses here can lease office, lab, or manufacturing space, or buy a plot to build their own infrastructure. The close proximity and association with one of Florida’s top universities make the location highly desirable, needless to say.

Among the chief industries at the Central Florida Research Park is simulation, for which our area is widely regarded as the global center. The park is home, for example, to the Institute for Simulation and Training as well as the National Center for Simulation, and the work going on in this field here includes significant contracts with the U.S. military.
