NYLO Hotels, the Dallas-based lifestyle hotel chain, has broken ground on its sixth hotel location in Nyack, N.Y. It will be the brand's second New York hotel after opening a location on Manhattan's Upper West Side. The hotel is slated to open in summer 2015.
The 132-room NYLO Nyack, 25 minutes north of New York City, will be a conversion from a four-story former factory.
“We are so excited to have NYLO Hotels join the wonderful Nyack community,” said Mayor Jen White. “We welcome them with open arms and we look forward to introducing NYLO's guests to not just the beautiful new hotel but to all that Nyack has to offer from our charming shops and restaurants to historical landmarks, incredible scenery and our friendly and creative residents."
NYLO Nyack features will include a 184-seat full-service restaurant and a 58-seat bar and lounge with indoor and outdoor seating; a recreational bathing pool, fitness center, library and game room; a business center and lobby lounge; 4,000 square feet of meeting rooms, including a 2,500 square foot ballroom; and a music studio with a live broadcast radio booth. As with all NYLO properties, NYLO Nyack will spotlight original artwork from local artists.
The project developers for NYLO Nyack are Michael Yanko and Kerry Wellington, principals of WY Management, a boutique development house headquartered in Nyack, New York.
Joseph Siegel and Hans Erdenberger, principals at Environetics Group Architects PC, are the architects for the 82,000-square-foot project. The creative team behind NYLO Nyack is Glen Coben of Glen & Co., an architectural and interior design firm based in New York City.
