The Naples Botanical Garden is finally moving forward on a large project after 80 years of planning.

The botanical garden will be building a new 20,000-square-foot visitor center, which will have a store, an auditorium, more gardens and a restaurant, according to NBC2.

The project is 20 years of work from turning a abandoned strip mall into a 170-acre garden.

The garden currently employs approximately 70 employees and will hire between 10 and 30 more once the Eleanor and Nicholas Chabraja Visitor Center is built.

The $15-million center will open in November 2014.
