Uber announced on Monday the construction of a new headquarters in Brazil, in Greater Sao Paulo, based on the “projected growth” for the company in the country in the coming years.

Named Uber Campus, the project in Osasco is expected to open in 2022, covering around 30,000 square meters, triple the area occupied by the current office. The building will also house the first Uber Technology Center in Latin America, launched in Brazil in 2018.
