About this deal

In a vertical system, you will very quickly see if there's a leak because everything is highly visible and accessible.

THE LINE will eventually accommodate 9 million people and will be built on a footprint of just 34 square kilometers. To use London as an example again, 25% of the water that is sent to London is lost through leaks you can’t see.If we can solve all of those issues with one solution, why would you build something that looks like what everybody else has already got?

The great thing about pre-engineered parts is that you can control quality and you can control dimensions, so that things connect. It's actually a human-centric approach, using machines to process large volumes of data to come up with optimal solutions. The public realm then becomes more than just a walkway from A to B, it becomes part of the fabric of the city. Nearly nine million people will live on THE LINE when complete, most of the population of NEOM in fact.

This is not just stacking everything on top of each other, we are reinventing things that exist in a conventional horizontal realm for a vertical close-proximity landscape. A place of unparalleled social and economic experimentation – without pollution and traffic – coupled with world-class preventative healthcare, so people will live longer. The city will also run on a net-zero basis, which means our energy is derived from renewable resources – wind, solar, green hydrogen and other technologies that will evolve.
