The full-scale Russian invasion interrupted the construction of the first phase of the M10 Lviv Industrial Park. Work resumed on the project in the summer 2022. The first warehouse complex — covering an area of 14,400 square meters (155,000 square feet) — is expected to be finished in the second half of 2023.

"The EBRD’s Lviv Industrial Park investment bridges a financing gap caused by adverse market conditions and is in line with the Bank’s stance on Ukraine and its overall response to the crisis," the bank's press release reads.
