Saudi Arabia is on the heels of building two parallel buildings connected by a 487-metre-high and 120-km-long walkway. Everything, in the middle of the desert. Urban planners envisioned two parallel buildings 487 meters high and 120 kilometers long, running in a line through coastal, mountainous and desert areas.

It is detailed in hundreds of pages of confidential planning documents that set out the idea in detail for the first time.

The project – called the Mirror Line – builds on an earlier announcement by Prince Mohammed of plans to create a linear community and is expected to cost up to $1 billion when fully completed and hold about five million people. finished, as published by wall street journal,

There will be a sports stadium more than 300 meters high for entertainment. It will also have a yacht harbor which is situated under an arch of two buildings.

For example, they face a 2030 completion deadline imposed by the prince’s national transformation plan and must address a range of issues, such as managing the migration of millions of birds through the corridors that will cross the structure.

A preliminary assessment of the impact of the line of mirrors, completed in January 2021, indicated that the project would have to be built in phases and could take 50 years. Neom employees expressed concerns in the document that people may avoid living in a high-rise environment after the pandemic and that the structure’s sheer size would alter groundwater flow dynamics in desert plains and restrict the movement of birds and other animals.
