Saudi Arabia Just Unveiled A City That Is A Hundred Miles Long!

As we all know Saudi Arabia is famous for its medieval barbarism and oil, but the kingdom is rebranding as a futuristic ecotopia.

The latest showcase of this unlikely vision is ‘The Line’, a mirrored city that’s 500m tall, 200m wide, and 170km long.

The metropolis will purportedly have a population of 1.5 million people by 2045 and the project is projected to cost up to $1 trillion. The project’s website claims that once it is completed, the city will be home to some 9 million residents on a total footprint of just 34 square kilometers.

The facilities will be vertically-layered across the 34 square km city. Spaces for work, leisure, and home will be accessible in three dimensions: up, down, and across.

Here’s what a promotional video for the project says:

“For too long, humanity has existed within dysfunctional and polluted cities that ignore nature. Now, a revolution in civilization is taking place. Imagine a traditional city, and consolidating its footprint, designing to protect and enhance nature.”

The Line is part of the broader Neom development in northwest Saudi Arabia.

While MBS has promised a “civilizational revolution that puts humans first,” the project will displace thousands of people already living on the site.

One tribesman from the community made videos protesting the evictions. He was later shot dead by Saudi security forces.

According to Bloomberg, earthwork on the city began in October 2021, and the first residents are projected to move in by 2024.

However, this plan caused Twitter users to draw comparisons to dystopian horror on Wednesday after Saudi Arabia shared an advertisement for a titanic megacity project it has proposed.
