|The foundation and concrete basement walls of the Visitor & Administration Building have been poured, and the 24,000 gallon cistern that will store rainwater to supply the water feature has been installed. In September, the building's structural steel will begin to rise above ground.
The Horticulture/Maintenance Building is nearing completion. Queens Botanical Garden staff will move into their new offices and workspaces in September.
