Serena Williams Set for a Nike Building in Her Name


New mom Serena Williams is to be honored with her own Nike building to celebrate her 15 years as one of the sportswear firm’s faces.

The Serena Williams Complex will be the largest on Nike’s world headquarters campus.

The tennis ace recently announced the big news via Instagram, writing: “What a year it has been. First a grand slam win followed by a awesome baby… then the most magical wedding. What next? How about a building!!

Nike announced… that one of its new world headquarters buildings will be named after me. It will be the biggest on campus and is scheduled to open in 2019. I am honored and grateful!”

The Serena Williams building will measure over one million square feet upon its completion.

The athlete, who wed Alexis Ohanian last month (Nov17), has also teased a new shoe collaboration with Nike, sporting sneakers boasting gold heels and soles.

“Be excited. Be very excited…,” she captioned the post.
