The NYLO Dallas South Side has earned national certification for the environmentally friendly design of its 102-year old building.

The hotel, which was a factory before opening as a hotel in August 2012, achieved LEED Gold certification. Gold is the second highest rating offered by Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.

NYLO joins 69 LEED Gold certified hotels in the nation and is the first historic hotel in Dallas to receive the rating, the company said.

The hotel’s developers Matthews Southwest and architects 5G Studio Collaborative had to make various changes to the building that sat vacant for 10 years. Some of the adjustments included adding film to the windows to reduce solar heat gain, installing energy-efficient lighting and sensor-controlled thermostats and using a 3,900-gallon cistern to collect rainwater for landscaping.

The hotel at 1325 S Lamar St. is one of three in Dallas-Fort Worth. It has 76 rooms, a bistro, restaurant, and rooftop pool, bar and lounge.
