Designs of Saudi Arabia’s futuristic city ‘The Line’ available at a public exhibition in Jeddah


This 100-mile-long vertical city is taller than the Empire State Building and could house more than 9 million people. The Line is part of the Saudi Arabian project NEOM.

Saudi Arabia is holding a free public exhibition in Jeddah for those who want to better understand the ambitious The Line project “in all its glory.”
Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman earlier unveiled details of the vertical city located within the Kingdom’s NEOM megaproject.
It has since drawn massive online attention, particularly because of its ambitious urban design – two parallel skyscrapers, with mirror surfaces, that stretch for 170 kilometres. The space between the buildings will only be 200 metres wide.
The aim is to house millions of residents using less land area, “it will eventually accommodate 9 million residents and will be built on a footprint of 34 square kilometres,” the NEOM website said.
The total footprint is significantly smaller when compared to other cities of similar capacity, it explained, and “will contribute to conserving 95 percent of NEOM’s land.” There will be no streets, cars, and emissions in The Line.

The exhibition in Jeddah will offer nearly 50 daily guided tours in both English and Arabic. Interested visitors should register online to get a ticket. It will be in Jeddah until August 14, but will move to other Saudi locations.
