The balloon habitat - built by Bigelow - is still up there - used for monitoring and storage now, I think.

Its called BEAM, and been very successful.

It is now planned to stay up as long as the ISS does.

I believe that they passed on NASAs tender for a larger module fir ISS- not enough in it for them at 500M, but have offered to assist on Artemis.
