BusinessExploring Neom City: Part 2(Updated 2024)

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s Neom City project is meant to diversify the country’s economy. It will create harmony between nature and humanity. It is expected to bring a lot of capital into the KSA’s economy while completely transforming the region.

Designs for the project include Neom Mountain and several luxury houses and hotels. Neom City also consists of 10 palaces meant for residential purposes, which could sell for up to $400 million each. Reportedly, at a meeting in December 2020, His Highness Prince Mohammed conceptualized the idea of a sustainable city. They rejected proposals with design ideas for the project that were too simple. 

A project that may change the world 

The project is expected to be on an unprecedented scale, not just in Saudi Arabia but also globally. The project has also been said to be flexible. It will be shaped by “changing priorities, opportunities, and challenges.”

Neom City is conceptualized to have a 106-mile-long carbon-neutral project called The Line, which will be a linear city solely powered by wind and solar energy and without cars.

One can travel the length of The Line by a high-speed train to every critical destination. For example, education centers and hospitals will be reached in just 5 minutes.

The other regional developments will be the Neom Bay, Aqaba Region, Neom Mountain, and Neom Industrial City. These all will surround The Line. The project is also set to have a resort on a mountainside called The Vault. 

The expanse of the project

The Neom is expected to have 14 industrial sectors, such as energy, food production, and media, which will diversify Saudi Arabia’s economy and reduce its dependence on crude oil. A project as ambitious as the Neom City calls for a team as ambitious, too.

Along with the architects, designers, and the executive team, the team worked day and night to realize Prince Mohammed’s vision for the project. Neom City has many other executives working diligently on it. Neom City will have its legal infrastructure, making the region a place for global development and conversation.

The architects working on Neom City are contemplating how feasible a massive skyscraper piercing The Line’s skyscape is. 

According to the Wall Street Journal, the tower could be as tall as 1,600 feet. I am making it more elevated than the Empire State Building. It has a width of 55 miles, which is four times the length of Manhattan. 

AI-Enabled City: One-of-a-kind

The City, a part of Saudi Arabia’s Vision for 2030, will be run entirely by artificial intelligence and enhanced by machine learning and 5G systems. This kind of administration is expected to make the lives of Neom City’s residents easier. Neom City’s infrastructure, which will be “invisible,” will be built “around nature, instead of over it.” 

It has also been said that Neom will be a hub for innovation. Where budding entrepreneurs, as well as seasoned ones, will have the ideal environment to fulfill visionary ideas.

Neom City is expected to build a network of supply chains. That will be very beneficial to the KSA’s economy. Neom City will also focus on sustainable food, sports, entertainment, health and well-being, biotech, and financial services.
