Hamburg/Winsen (Aller)/Dortmund, 11 October 2023. Cureus, an integrated property company that specialises in developing and actively managing its own care home portfolio, completed and handed over the new Belia Seniorenresidenz Dortmund at „Wohncarrée Hansemannstraße“ between Hansemannstraße 14 and Castroper Straße 76 in 44357 Dortmund (North Rhine-Westphalia) to an Belia Seniorenresidenzen as operator. Cureus acted as general contractor itself.

"Dortmund is thus enriched by an important location for care," says a delighted Uwe Poganiatz-Heine, project manager at Cureus. "The entire residence complex has been built according to our modern standard of system care real estate and with special architectural standards. Thus, modern and spacious care rooms and assisted living apartments with generous glazing and a friendly facade design adapted to the surroundings make the facility a home to feel at home. With Belia, we have gained a very experienced expert for the operation. We would like to thank everyone involved in the construction for the successful project implementation and wish the residents and the Belia team all the best at this new location for high-quality care!"

"We are very much looking forward to the opening of the facility in October 2023," emphasizes Andreas Anspach, Managing Director at Belia Seniorenresidenzen. "With our 'Open Residences' concept, we promote the residents' social and community contacts with the local environment. In addition to quality care and nursing, we offer an attractive program of events and leisure activities so that our residents feel completely at ease – true to our motto 'Belia – Besser leben im Alter'. But we also focus on our employees, as they are the foundation for high-quality care. For the start of operations, we are still looking for support in the areas of care, administration, housekeeping and building services. Applications are still open."

Belia Seniorenresidenz Dortmund with a wide range of care, residential and other services

Two modern buildings have been constructed on the approx. 4,050-square-metre site. The Wohncarrée Hansemannstraße has been built to the stringent KfW 40 energy-efficiency standard. A combined heat and power plant (CHP) supplys both heat to the senior residence and generate electricity.

The fully barrier-free senior residence has around 5,300 square metres of gross floor area (GFA), extending from the ground floor over three upper storeys to a recessed top storey. The ground floor welcomes residents and guests with a hotel-style lobby, a lounge with library and a range of amenities including a hair and chiropody salon and an in-house laundry. A restaurant serving freshly prepared meals is also open to the public. The restaurant also has a terrace, creating a pleasant connection to the senior residence’s garden.

There are 84 modern single rooms on the upper floors with en-suite bathrooms, telephone, internet and tv connection, including 65 rooms that are also wheelchair accessible. All of the rooms can be individually furnished by residents to create a feel-good atmosphere and a private retreat. The residence is divided into four living groups, each with its own lounge area and kitchen, guaranteeing a homely, family-like atmosphere.

The residential building on Castroper Straße has a gross floor area of around 1,600 square metres on three full floors and a recessed top storey. The ground floor accommodates 18 outpatient daycare places, a spacious lounge for a variety of communal activities with a kitchen and access to its own terrace and garden. Therapy and relaxation rooms and a nursing bath round off the amenities.

A separate entrance provides elevator access to the two upper floors and the recessed top floor with the 15 assisted living units. Six units are located on each full floor, and three more on the recessed floor. The apartment sizes range from 50 to 60 square meters with different apartment types. All apartments have a bedroom, bathroom, living and kitchen area with fitted kitchen, storage room and hallway as well as balcony or roof terrace.

Ideal location and high-quality construction

The immediate area around Wohncarrées Hansemannstraße is home to a large number of shops, doctors, social and leisure amenities, as well as boasting outstanding transport connections. The commuter train connection and bus stops in front of the door, as well as the nearby motorway on-ramp, ensure optimal accessibility for residents, visitors and staff, as well as providing easy access to Dortmund city centre. The residence’s inner courtyard offers 35 car parking spaces, five of which are fully accessible, plus 20 bicycle parking spaces.

The nearby Hansemannpark is an inviting place to go for a stroll, while the residence’s park-like inner courtyard with circular path and attractive planting is also available to all residents for exercise, relaxation and socialising.

Wohncarrée Hansemannstraße has been designed and built in accordance with the Cureus standard for system care homes. This places great importance on uniform, high quality standards and is oriented, among other things, towards the requirements of the operators, focusing on the residents and care staff. In this way, the structural processes and all properties are optimised from the inside to the outside: This concerns, for example, the size and arrangement of rooms to optimize space and walkways. Cureus care homes are also designed and equipped for maximum utility: interior corridors benefit from as much daylight as possible, every room has floor-to-ceiling windows that provide attractive views of the surrounding area, and the modern bathrooms and window fronts always follow the same standardised system approach. Each complex’s architecture and facade incorporate individual touches and are constructed to the highest quality standards, integrating seamlessly into their surroundings. The Cureus system approach also prioritises sustainability, both in terms of a care home’s long-term economic viability and its impact on the environment. All Cureus care homes are, for example, constructed in accordance with the ‘Effizienhaus-40-Standard’, while the bulk procurement of floor coverings or elevator systems, for example, ensures cost synergies and long-term maintenance contracts covering several properties also reduce costs for care home operators. The constant review and optimisation of the Cureus system care home standard guarantees the construction of care homes that truly meet demand.
