The ride-hailing startup Uber continues to grow, and, as the Huffington Post reports, the company wants an office to match its soon-to-be $50 billion value.

Renderings and photographs of the design’s models have been released online. Designed by New York-based SHoP Architects and Studio O+A in San Francisco, the office will be two glass structures linked by criss-crossing bridges hanging over a tree-lined pedestrian boulevard. 

The offices will be located near Uber’s current headquarters in the up-and-coming Mission Bay neighborhood.

Completion is expected no later than the beginning of 2018, an Uber spokeswoman told the Huffington Post.
