A collection of governments funded the International Space Station (ISS). Estimates set the cost at $150B USD to $200B USD. Lunar infrastructure may be similar. But the lunar gravity poses benefits and detriments. Equally decades have passed since the commencement of the ISS. A rough order of magnitude estimate for the cost for the lunar infrastructure today is $500B USD.
See the following table to compare this amount to other infrastructure projects. It’s a bit larger.
