Following the start of construction in June 2020, the new DOMICIL senior care home in Schweinfurt will be handed over to the operator in April of this year. Located not far from the River Main on the edge of the Kiliansberg villa district, the senior citizens’ facility on Hennebergstrasse will in future offer 149 modern care places to residents of the Franconian city steeped in history. The investor HBB from Hamburg has invested around 26 million euros in the new building.
Schweinfurt is already familiar territory for the investor HBB Hanseatische Gesellschaft für Seniorenimmobilien II mbH & Co. KG from Hamburg, Schweinfurt is already familiar territory. The new nursing home in Hennebergstrasse is already the second building that HBB has built for the operator DOMICIL. In addition to the existing facility in Theresienstrasse, DOMICIL is thus expanding its range of services by a further 149 nursing places in the city.
The basis for this is a relationship of trust between the city and the investor that has grown over the years. HBB acquired the 8,300 sqm building plot for the new facility directly from the city of Schweinfurt. Even before the start of construction in 2020, HBB’s commitment was expressly welcomed by the city. This is because, especially at the beginning of the Corona pandemic, it became clear how important it is for the city to have sufficient and good senior care homes. The fact that HBB commissioned the Schweinfurt construction company Glöckle to implement the project further underpinned this relationship of trust. “As an investor, we are pleased to have found an efficient local partner for the construction work,” emphasizes HBB Managing Director Oliver Radünz. Because for the long-term success and the acceptance of the DOMICIL houses, which remain in principle in the existence of the HBB, is indispensable “that intact relations with the local responsible persons and the local enterprises exist”. The new project was therefore developed in close and constructive coordination between the city, the municipal housing company SWG and HBB – in a dialog process with the neighbors that extended over several years, according to Radünz.
