Quote from: Blue Origin
To develop Blue Origin’s vision of millions of people living and working in space, humanity will require places for them to live and work: space destination systems in which value-creating economic activity can occur. LEO (low Earth orbit) habitable stations, learning from but going beyond the ISS (International Space Station), are a first step. Such stations, supporting a robust LEO economy, will be fundamentally different from “exploration” habitats designed for small, professionally trained crews in deep space.

I'd guess any habitat would be 7m in diameter and use NG tooling.

Must have crew vehicle in works to transport their customers. Which was a given really, question is how many seats would it be.

There is already a thread on this: https://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=48241.0

It's not long.

 Previously they proposed a wet lab single launch habitat.
