If only we had something like this when we were growing up!

Now that her Manhattan penthouse is completed, Tyra Banks is moving on to her next construction project: a new office slash girls club!

The Derek Zoolander Center For Children Who Can't Read Good And Wanna Learn To Do Other Stuff Good Too Tyra Banks TZONE will be housed inside the Lower Eastside Girls Club on Avenue D and function as both an office and a leadership center for girls.

The Queen of Smize's office will only take up 2,000 square feet, but the remaining 28,000 square feet boasts a bakery, studio space, a wellness center and a planetarium.

Umm, what!? Sooooo jealous!

When the TZONE opens next year, Tyra says she'll be not only interacting with the girls who come to the center, but also doing business.

She explains:

"What I don’t want to be is Tyra, the ‘celebrity girl,’ coming here and the girls being excited when they see me. I want them to be numb to me. I can do normal work here and they can see me, to know that this is what a business is. It’s not about living on a red carpet. I am a businesswoman who goes to work every single day.”"

So inspiring! We can't wait to see the place when it's finished — especially the planetarium!
