Active construction began on this project in 2010 after the opening of the three new stations on the Kurenivsko-Chervonoarmiyska Line from the former Lybidska terminus.
The station is designed as shallow and has one underground vault, similarly to adjacent "Vasylkivska". The southwestern platform end is linked by a four-stripe escalator to the underground entrance hall, ending into an underpass under Vasylkivska street. Further plans exist to connect it with another one under 40-richcha Zhovtnya avenue, so as to make one of the exits right beside the exhibition centre.
The opening was initially scheduled for December 31, 2011, as re-planned the station was opened on December 27, 2011.
The official opening ceremony took place at 11.00 in the morning, the first train with passengers left for the new station at 13.10.
