DALLAS—NYLO Dallas South Side has achieved LEED Gold certification—one of the highest possible rankings from the U.S. Green Building Council. The hotel, which opened in August 2012, is the first NYLO property to achieve LEED certification, the first historic hotel in Dallas to achieve LEED Gold certification and one of only 69 LEED Gold certified hotels in the United States. “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,” said Michael Mueller, NYLO Hotels’ CEO. “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.” NYLO Dallas South Side is housed in a 102-year-old former factory that sat vacant for more than 10 years.

WESTBURY, N.Y.—The Viana Hotel and Spa, located in Westbury N.Y., has been awarded LEED certification by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC). As Long Island’s only green-built feng shui hotel, Viana Hotel and Spa has made an unwavering commitment to sustainability and efficiency. The project team includes LEED consultants, The Cotocon Group and TWIG, who utilize various elements to create buildings that are sustainable and retrofitted to green standards. The architectural work that carries out these eco-friendly principles was completed by Hero Architects, and accompanied by commissioning agent Viridian Energy & Environmental LLC. Starting with the demolition, the team behind The Viana Hotel and Spa building began practicing green behavior by ensuring the materials from the previous structure were carefully recycled. From there, the building was developed using environmentally conscious techniques. The wall insulation, steel, and concrete used for the structure are all made of recycled material. In fact, the roof insulation is made of Icynene, a material made partially of recycled soda bottles.
