The iconic giant is in the process of adding three new buildings totaling a collective 3.2 million square feet to its existing infrastructure, according to the Oregonian.

Although Nike has yet to comment, real estate and construction experts say the project is ringing in at the tune of $1 billion.

The expansion is expected to be complete by 2018, and adds a combination of office space, mixed use facilities and parking space to Nike’s 213-acre headquarters.

According to Nike, this project is the last chapter in a series of work on campus that began in the 90s. The buildings are within the company’s master plan for the property, which they have owned since 1984, and the architecture takes cues from “human movement, speed, and the strength and energy of completion,” according to Nike.

In true Oregon fashion, Nike and the multiple firms they are working with will ensure that the new buildings are LEED certified with multiple sustainable attributes.

The designs have also been developed with LEED Platinum Certification in mind. Some of the sustainable aspects include natural daylighting, passive chilled beams -- a radiant convection system designed to heat or cool large buildings -- and a closed-looped grey water treatment center.
