In the early twentieth century in this sphere reinforced concrete has became widely used. One of the oldest examples of industrial architecture are established in 1890s in a rational "brick" style buildings of first city power station and tram depot, located on the intersection of Dzerzhynskoho (today it's Vitovskoho) and Suvorova (today Sakharova) streets.
Interesting architectural decisions can be seen on the power station of early XX cent. on Kozelnytska street, the house of Bachevskyi alcoholic beverage company on B. Khmelnytskoho street, today used by the Production Association "Almazinstrument", buildings of joint stock brewery plant on the Kleparivska street (now it is the Production Association "Lviv Brewery").
In the early XX cent. Lviv already was a big capitalist city, the spontaneous growth and private land ownership of which have led to significant complications in the development of public transport, placing a number of industrial enterprises in residential areas, a sharp social differentiation of the urban environment. The rapid development of building contributed to a certain leveling of the bright artistic image of the middle nucleus, which then dissolved in the mass of the multi-storey buildings, by which it was surrounded.
At the same time, the formation of capitalism period architecture has left us some extraordinary examples of urban art, beautiful parks, squares and urban landscaping elements. Due to the development of mass industrial building, the system of engineering networks became developed,and the value of architecture masterpieces, which have reflected the stylistic periods of European architecture, became even more obvious during past 20-25 years.
