Stonehill & Taylor-Designed Hotel Awarded LEED Gold Status

Nov 25, 2013

The NoMad hotel has gained LEED Gold status, making it one of the city's three hotel properties with top LEED credentials.


The NoMad, which was created by the Sydell Group, opened in late spring of 2012 following a meticulous renovation of the landmark Johnson building on the corner of 28th and Broadway. Leading the architecture design and historic preservation was New York-based Stonehill & Taylor, who converted the previous office building into the NoMad Hotel.


"We held the NoMad at the highest standard for the environment and the comfort of the luxury guest," says Paul Taylor, president of Stonehill & Taylor. "It is our mission to continue to lead in the creation of sustainable luxury destinations."


To achieve LEED Gold Status, occupancy sensors for lighting and HVAC in hotel rooms were installed to reduce energy when rooms are unoccupied. The existing building’s exterior walls and floors were reused sustainably, and the wood flooring in the guestroom is reclaimed wood as well. High efficiency windows, HVAC equipment, and water loop heat pumps also save energy, while dual-flush toilets in guest bathrooms conserve water.


A green roof and outdoor space contribute to a high ratio of open space to development footprint. Lastly, the hotel implemented a green operations and maintenance plan to reduce toxins and chemicals introduced into the building after completion.
