Nike’s Serena Williams building is set to measure over one million square feet upon completion in 2019, making it the largest on its campus. “Serena Williams is one of the greatest athletes of all time, one of the most inspiring people in sport, and a dominating presence on and off the court,” Nike told Money. “She has won Wimbledon seven times, the US Open six times, and more Grand Slam tennis titles – 23 – than any man or woman in history.”
