Canvas Hotel

CCH Lamar Partners I

The Canvas Hotel (formerly the NYLO Dallas South Side), once home to the Dallas Coffin Company when originally constructed in 1911, is now a vibrant boutique hotel anchoring Dallas’ South Side redevelopment. Plans for renovation of the five-story masonry and concrete structure included a rooftop amenities deck with pool, while new service cores for vertical circulation posed numerous structural challenges. JQ employed innovative strategies for evaluating and modifying the historic structure — including load testing, GPR, helical pile foundations and CFRP reinforcing. Close collaboration between the design team and owner helped maintain historic integrity while creating a successful and sustainable building for future generations.
