Saudi Arabia is reportedly building a record-breaking skyscraper that stretches 120km, according to documents seen by The Wall Street Journal.
The project, called Mirror Line, is made up of two buildings standing 1,600 feet tall and running 120km long across the coast, mountains and desert. It will be connected via walkways and a high-speed train.
Mirror Line is part of Saudi Arabia’s $500 billion Neom project, which aims to have a super city inhabited by about five million people by 2030.
The Mirror Line is designed by US-based Morphosis Architects, and follows Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s announcement in January of plans to create a linear community.
Prince Mohammed announced that the coastal strip northwest of Saudi Arabia will be developed into a smart town without cars or streets.
The Mirror Line is one of a series of projects that make up Neom. The Mirror Line will be surrounded by four other developments: Neom Bay, Aqaba Region, Neom Mountain and Neom Industrial City. A planned project called Vault is also expected to turn the mountainside into a resort. ICA/Expat Media
