The NoMad Hotel, NYC, LEED Gold Certified

This fabulous eco-luxury hotel was the first renovated hotel in New York City to obtain LEED Gold Certification and was one of NYC’s three hotel properties with top LEED credentials upon certification in 2013.

leed-goldThe hotel’s standout green features that contributed toward the awarding of LEED Gold are:

  • Occupancy sensors for lighting and HVAC in hotel rooms to reduce energy when rooms are unoccupied
  • Sustainable reuse of the existing building’s exterior walls and floors
  • Reclaimed wood flooring in the guestrooms
  • High efficiency windows and HVAC equipment
  • Water loop heat pumps that condition the rooms
  • Dual-flush toilets in guest bathrooms
  • A green roof and outdoor space that contribute to a high ratio of open space to development footprint
  • Implementation of a Green Operations and Maintenance Plan to reduce toxins and chemicals introduced into the building after completion

In addition, the Hotel is implementing many of AGPOM’s Green Behavioral Plan for Hotels and Resorts.  The following provides an example of their commitment:

  • Reusable linen program for guests to reuse towels and linens during their stay
  • Relying on natural daylight in restaurants and common areas for as much of each day as possible
  • Keep window coverings closed in unoccupied guest rooms to combat extreme temps
  • Incandescent light bulbs have been replaced with CFLs
  • Recycling programs are used and encouraged
  • Purchases locally, when possible
  • Un-used and/or no longer used items are donated to charities
