CapMan Real Estate supports Ukrainians in need by donating surplus hotel inventory to Help Ukraine Gothenburg

CapMan Real Estate has agreed to donate surplus hotel inventory from Solna Kasernen 1 to Ukrainians in need through the non-profit integration and peace association Help Ukraine Gothenburg (HUG). The hotel and office property Solna Kasernen 1 was acquired by the CapMan Nordic Real Estate III Fund in November 2022 and is currently being emptied ahead of a refurbishment. The property holds a large inventory of beds, blankets, pillows etc. from 200 hotel rooms which are not needed by the hotel after the refurbishment, and which the fund is happy to donate to those in need.

The first pick-up of inventory took place last weekend, when HUG collected over 400 beds from the property premises. HUG is now transporting the beds to Ukraine with help from its partner donor, Volvo Defence. The beds will be used in Kherson and Boryspil.

”We are very happy to partner up with HUG on this initiative and appreciate their work which allows surplus inventory from our asset to be reused where it is needed the most.”, says Magnus Berglund, Partner at CapMan Real Estate.

“I want to thank CapMan Real Estate for their thoughtful consideration and generosity. This donation will mean a lot to families in Ukraine. Thank you for standing shoulder-to- shoulder in our support to Ukraine”, shares Katja Blagodyr, founder and Head of mission at HUG.

Help Ukraine Gothenburg (HUG) is a non-profit integration and peace association run by Ukrainians in Sweden and in the occupied Ukraine with the vision of a just and sustainable world in peace, where people on the run can become active and integrated social actors. HUG aims for a society characterized by peace, global justice, and humanity, above and beyond constructed, national, cultural, social and economic borders. HUG is a non-political humanitarian association.

CapMan Real Estate manages approximately €4.5 billion in real estate assets and the Real Estate Team comprises over 65 real estate professionals located in Helsinki, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Oslo and London.
