About this was reported by Vasyl Khmelnytsky, an entrepreneur and founder of UNIT.City, who met with Mayor Andriy Sadovyi the day before.
"We are considering the option of creating an industrial park here so that our production facilities do not go abroad but stay in Ukraine and create jobs in our country," he said.
The industrial zone "Sygnivka" is considered as a potential location for the industrial park.
According to Roman Staretsky, Head of the Investment Department of the Lviv City Council, the construction of a complex of enterprises on this territory will provide an opportunity about 6,000 jobs. In addition, direct income to the city budget will amount to "approximately UAH 78 million from personal income tax."
It is worth noting that UDP, a development company invested by Vasyl Khmelnytsky's UFuture holding, is engaged in the development of Ukrainian innovation parks.
In particular, they created the UNIT.City innovation park on the territory of the former Kyiv Motorcycle Plant, which provides a space for rapid growth and partnership for modern technology companies.
As of 2021, UNIT.City had 110 resident companies. Laboratories, business campuses, and coworking spaces, as well as investment funds that provide grant and mentoring programs, including those from Amazon and Berkeley University, have been set up to help Ukrainian startups develop.
Later, UNIT.City opened a programming school and coworking space UNIT.Factory in Kharkiv and was involved in the implementation of the LvivTech.City innovation park project, the first business campus of which was opened in December 2021.
By the way, the Lviv park was named the best multifunctional development project in Ukraine according to the European Property Awards 2020-2021.
