NEOM, the city with the tallest building in the world

The building would be a house of mixed residential, retail and office space running from the Red Sea coast into the desert 

NEOM, a megacity with a $500 billion investment is set to be home to the world's tallest buildings as Saudi Arabia sets its eyes on a new record.

The project which is a brainchild of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, will have twin skyscrapers about 500 meters (1,640 feet) tall that stretch horizontally for dozens of miles. As per reports, upon completion, each structure would be larger than the world’s current biggest buildings.

The Kingdom is currently home to the world’s fourth-tallest building: The Abraj al-Bait clock tower hotel in Mecca, which is 601 meters tall. Otherwise, the world’s current tallest man-made structure is the 828-metre-tall (2,717 ft) Burj Khalifa in Dubai.

NEOM was announced by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in 2017 as part of the Kingdom’s drive to diversify its oil-reliant economy.

The Crown Prince intends NEOM to be a futuristic, sustainable community joined together by The Line – a 170 kilometer stretched of car-free communities linked by public transport.
