Saudi megacity to feature two mirrored skyscrapers, says Crown Prince

The futuristic Saudi megacity NEOM is to feature two skyscrapers extending across a swathe of desert and mountain terrain.

The parallel structures of mirror-encased skyscrapers extending over 170 kilometres, known collectively as The Line, form the heart of the Red Sea megacity NEOM, a plank, of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s bid to diversify the Gulf state’s oil-dependent economy.

NEOM said it would create 380,000 jobs by the end of the decade “whilst providing the ultimate work-life balance”. The “first phase” of the project, lasting until 2030, will cost 1.2 trillion Saudi royals, Prince Mohammed said.
