Hey guys,

Surely you might've come across Saudi Arabia's NEOM in these past few days. Let's start exploring.

A New Wonder of the World?

NEOM City is the proposed futuristic megacity project by Saudi Arabia that has been making waves all across the digital space for the past few days.

The city of NEOM is currently regarded as the most ambitious project in civil and city design. The city of NEOM is said to be the next big step in civilization building, and many scholars are comparing its impact to be the same as the one by early London's City plan after the great fire.

What does NEOM mean?

NEOM is made up of two words NEO, the Greek prefix meaning "New," and M from the Arabic word Mustaqbal which means "Future."

Where is NEOM located?

NEOM City is being built in the Tabuk province of Saudi Arabia. Neom is located in the northwestern region of the country and east of Egypt along the Gulf of Aqaba.

NEOM will cover an expanse of 26,500 sq km and will extend to 170 km. The mega project's cost estimate is 500 Billion dollars. The funding for the project is done through the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia.

Leadership of NEOM

The project is overseen by Mohammad bin Salman of the House of Saud, the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia.

The extraordinary project is part of the Saudi Vision 2030 program that seeks to develop and redefine the country's economy and make it less dependent upon its oil reserves.

The project was launched in 2017, and Klaus Kleinfield was named the Inaugural Director of NEOM. He was succeeded by Nadhmi A. Al-Nasr as Kleinfield was named as the advisor to Prince Mohammed Bin Sultan.

Different Sectors of NEOM

The Futuristic Mega City is currently divided into three regions Oxagon, The Line, and the Trojena.

Oxagon

Oxagon is a spectacular floating city that will be part of NEOM. The building of the project is already underway and is expected to be completed around 2025. Oxagon was initially named as NEOM Industrial City or NIC. As the name suggests, Oxagon will be the foundation for Industry 4.0 and a "Blueprint for Advanced and Clean Industries ."It aims to blend state of the art technology and eco friendly processes to reduce the carbon footprint substantially and, at the same time peaking productivity to the next level.

It is designed in the shape of an octagon and will also house a fully automated port for aiding logistics in the regional trade, especially the gulf of Aqaba, and promoting more maritime trade routes as well as global markets to the city of NEOM. It will be completely run on renewable energy and, in addition, will house residential and commercial ventures as well.

In short, Oxagon will be the next generation hub of industries.

The Line

Within the NEOM City project, perhaps the most anticipated project is The Line. Unlike the contemporary cities around the world, as the name suggests, it will be a single line extending upto 170 km but with a width of only 200 meters.

NEOM City Line, according to Prince Mohammed, would be the futuristic outlook for the next generation of metropolitan cities devoid of traffic and pollutants. The Line will have parallel towers, and the outer walls will be covered with mirrors. The structure will be 500 meters above sea level and can accommodate over 9 million people.

The residents can access all their necessities within a 5-minute walk, and the entire structure will be eco-friendly, with sprawling flora all around. There will also be a high speed rail that can cover end to end within 20 minutes. The automated services will be catered to through AI systems. NEOM Line will be Zero Carbon, and the entire operations will be working on renewable energy.

Trojena

Trojena is also subbed the Mountains of NEOM. The mountain range hub will be an all year round destination for adventure sports, commercial ventures, and experiencing the excitement of futuristic entertainment and tourism.

The structure occupies an area of 60 square kilometers with elevations ranging from 2600m.

The parts of NEOM Saudi Arabia's Trojena

The Lake: The engineered lake at Trojena will serve as a hub for entertainment, family fun, and hosting events.

The Vault: Unlike anything you've ever seen, the Vault will be folded vertical village that acts as the gateway to Trojena.

The Bow: The high end water embedded structure will be underneath the lake and will have adaptable spaces for events, conferences, concerts, and much more.

There is also a Ski Village, an Observatory, and a Wild Life Reserve. Trojena also offers amazingly crafted luxury mansions. Trojena thus becomes luxury redefined.

Controversies surrounding NEOM

Though NEOM is undoubtedly a beacon for futuristic metropolitans, it has also been in the news for various controversies, including toxic work culture and displacement of the native Howeitat tribe.

To conclude, just like EPCOT, TELOSA, and various other futuristic cities that are either still in their infantile conceptive stages, there is a wide range of skepticism about NEOM. However, the construction has already begun, and the massive project will propel a new sense of future for us all.
