NEOM and The Line: Saudi Arabia Plans to Construct the World’s Largest Building


Saudi Arabia will build one of the world’s largest structures spanning 121 kilometers in width and up to 488 meters in height, in the desert city of NEOM. Dubbed the “The Line”, the mega project is expected to cost $1 trillion and will be mostly made of reflective glass.

According to press release, “the designs of THE LINE embody how urban communities will be in the future in an environment free from roads, cars and emissions. It will run on 100% renewable energy and prioritize people’s health and well-being over transportation and infrastructure as in traditional cities. It puts nature ahead of development and will contribute to preserving 95% of NEOM’s land.”


“THE LINE will eventually accommodate 9 million residents and will be built on a footprint of 34 square kilometers, which is unheard of when compared to other cities of similar capacity. This in turn will reduce the infrastructure footprint and create never-before-seen efficiencies in city functions. Its ideal climate all year round will ensure that residents can enjoy surrounding nature when traveling on foot. Residents will also have access to all facilities in THE LINE within a five-minute walk, in addition to a high-speed rail with an end-to-end transit of 20 minutes.”
