The G.O.A.T is getting her due!

Tennis champion Serena Williams took to Instagram on Wednesday (April 27) to reveal the brand new one-million-square-foot building named in her honor at the Nike headquarters in Oregon.

The 23-time Grand Slam winner wrote that this latest honor is actually fulfilling a childhood dream of hers.

"When I was just a kid I visited the @nike campus and I saw that athletes get buildings! After that visit, I knew I wanted two things; to be a Nike athlete and to have a building," Williams captioned a video showing off the architectural masterpiece which features a tennis court and a massive portrait of the athlete.

"I set my goals high. I knew I would have to be elite, and not only the best, but someone that changes the course of sport. And now, here we are," she continued. "Blood sweat and many tears, many trophies," went into Serena's legacy of athletic excellence and now it's cemented forever in Nike's Beaverton campus.

"It is beyond an honor and giving me chill bumps," Serena added. "I am so grateful to Nike and the Nike team. Can you believe it? I have a BUILDING Y’ALL!!! This is CRAZY!!!"
