Projected start of construction is June 2020
Schweinfurt – “HBB Hanseatische Gesellschaft für Seniorenimmobilien II mbH & Co.” as the investor. KG from Hamburg is building a second Senior Citizens’ Retirement Home in Schweinfurt’s “Hennebergstraße”. Tasked with building is the Schweinfurt construction company, “Glöckle”.
“It is very apparent right now how important it is that we have enough, good quality senior citizens’ care homes in the City. I have great pleasure, therefore, that immediately adjacent to the “Leopoldina” Hospital, at the border of the “Kiliansberg” residential area, a new, approx. 8,400m² Senior Citizens’ Retirement Home will stand there. It is particularly satisfying that the investor, HBB, could award this project to the Schweinfurt building company, ‘Glöckle’,” according to Mayor, Sebastian Remelé.
It is anticipated that in June of this year the building may begin, completion of the structure being in the 1st quarter of 2022.
The new Senior Citizens’ Retirement Home has been designed by “Melzer Architects” in Berlin to be modern and welcoming at the same time and covering four floors. Access to the L-shaped building is exclusively via “Hennebergstraße”. The building will be created for 149 residents. Almost all the residents’ rooms will be single rooms that exceed the legal size requirements and allowing the resident to personalise it, if desired, moving in their own furniture.
The plot between “Hennebergstraße” and “Söldnerstraße” is around 8,300m2 in size. The western part has a comprehensive collection of mature trees, lending the grounds the true character of a park and staying completely preserved. What is more, the landscape planning by the renowned landscapers “BHF” in Kiel envisages a beautifully laid-out garden with handpicked greenery, extending an invitation to stroll around or linger there. “The residents should get the feeling of being hidden away, with maximum security being provided,” according to HBB’s Managing Director, Oliver Radünz.
The project has been developed in close and constructive collaboration between the City, the civil construction company, “SWG”, “Leopoldina Hospital” and HBB. Neighbours were consulted about the planning during a dialogue process lasting many years.
HBB has invested around 26.0m Euros in the project. Around 80 new jobs will be created.
