Washington D.C. will be adding a new garden to its landscape soon, but it’s not just an average garden.

The city will be getting a classical Chinese garden installed in the U.S. National Arboretum in collaboration between China and the United States, according to the China Daily.

The garden will feature traditional Chinese buildings with Ming and Qing style furnishings, as well as Chinese flora and landscaping.

The project was initially started in 2004 but the plans were put on hold for several years. In 2008, the new Farm Bill allowed the Secretary of Agriculture to proceed with private fundraising for the garden.

The National China Garden Foundation is finalizing the design plans and the foundation will need to raise approximately $60 million for the garden.

The garden will be open to the public and is slated to open in 2016.
