NYLO Dallas South Side Hotel Earns LEED Gold Certification

Jul 23, 2013

NYLO Dallas South Side has achieved LEED Gold certification. The hotel is the first NYLO property, as well as the first historic hotel in Dallas, to do so, and one of only 69 LEED Gold certified hotels in the country.  

“This was NYLO’s first adaptive-reuse project, and it’s in a landmarked historic building to boot—which meant our design team did even more creative problem-solving than usual,” says Michael Mueller, CEO of NYLO hotels. “We couldn’t be happier or more proud of the LEED Gold certification and NYLO’s continued leadership in green initiatives at all of the NYLO hotel properties.”

Housed in a 102-year-old former factory, NYLO Dallas South Side sat vacant for more than 10 years. Developers Matthews Southwest and Dallas-based architects 5G Studio Collaborative transformed the building by reusing original materials, adapting the building’s existing core structure to meet certain green criteria, and minimizing the property’s environmental footprint. 

The construction and design teams added a well-insulated, high albedo roof to the roof structure and low-E film to the existing windows to reduce solar heat gain. By recycling 83 percent of construction and demolition debris and reusing materials from the build, the hotel’s footprint was reduced. A 3,900-gallon cistern collects rainwater for landscaping and irrigation, and energy-efficient lighting, sensor-controlled thermostats, and low-flow fixtures were installed.

“Our work on NYLO Dallas South Side has been exciting and challenging, and we felt privileged for the opportunity to create something truly innovative while bringing a historic building to the leading edge of sustainability,” says Scott Lowe, co-founder and partner of 5G Studio Collaborative.

All NYLO hotels operate with at least 50 percent Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) and use biodegradable, corn-based takeout containers, coffee cups, straws, utensils, and napkins.
