Saudi Arabia's $500 billion megacity: NEOM KSA

The development of the NEOM region inside the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has taken initial steps since its inception in 2017. The big budget project has set high goals for the future of living and working. With a boost budget of 500 billion US Dollars and an area 26,500 square kilometers in size some innovation and spectacular events could be expected.

Currently three main development efforts are taking place: The extremely heavily promoted city of the future “The Line” with its 500-meter-tall landscape cutting reflective walls, the water-floating 8-sided and 7-kilometer-wide swimming logistics and industrial hub called Oxagon, and the high above Ski-Resort Trojena which is hosting the 2029 outdoor Asian Winter Games in the desert.

The core ideas of NEOM include the rise to be a regional Silicon Valley, realizing the dream to be a futuristic tourism destination, and gaining recognition through unseen Mega Sports Events. NEOM in the Tabuk province has a lot of unique offers as a desert region with a rich coastal area. With an arid hot desert climate showing rainfall of maximal 412mm and temperatures rising to 44 °C the region still has a very biodiverse ecosystem around the camels.

The planned technology infrastructure focuses on total digital connectivity. With its own hyperscale data center (ZeroPoint DC) and wireless and fiber cable networking worth a billion US Dollars data from everything and everyone is harvested for the smart city. For entertainment Glow-in-the dark beaches and a fake moon will help the Futurists to live the life of the future.
