‘The Line’ New Wonders for the world
THE FUTURE OF URBAN LIVING
THE LINE is a civilizational revolution that puts humans first, providing an unprecedented urban living experience while preserving the surrounding nature. It redefines the concept of urban development and what cities of the future should look like.
No roads, cars or emissions, it will run on 100% renewable energy and 95% of land will be preserved for nature. People’s health and wellbeing will be prioritized over transportation and infrastructure, unlike traditional cities. Only 200 meters wide, but 170 kilometers long and 500 meters above sea level.
THE LINE will eventually accommodate 9 million people and will be built on a footprint of just 34 square kilometers. This will mean a reduced infrastructure footprint, creating never-before-seen efficiencies in city functions. The ideal climate all-year-round will ensure that residents can enjoy the surrounding nature. Residents will also have access to all facilities within a five-minute walk, in addition to high-speed rail – with an end-to-end transit of 20 minutes.
“THE LINE will tackle the challenges facing humanity in urban life today and will shine a light on alternative ways to live. We cannot ignore the livability and environmental crises facing our world’s cities, and NEOM is at the forefront of delivering new and imaginative solutions to address these issues. NEOM is leading a team of the brightest minds in architecture, engineering and construction to make the idea of building upwards a reality.”

WORLD-CLASS QUALITY OF LIFE
Where the best and the brightest live. A place of unparalleled social and economic experimentation – without pollution and traffic accidents – coupled with world-class preventative healthcare, so people will live longer.
A PLACE TO PROTOTYPE BUSINESSES
Built around humans, not technology. A cognitive city that predicts and reacts to what we need, not the other way round. Zero-gravity living will mean a higher-density footprint creates a richer human experience, and new business opportunities. Some 380,000 jobs will be created by 2030.
ENVIRONMENTAL SOLUTION TO URBANISM
Our zero-car environment is part of a 100% sustainable transport system – with zero pollution and zero wait time. Reduced commutes will create more time for leisure. Not paying for expenses like car insurance, fuel and parking will mean higher disposable incomes for citizens.
A COMMUNITY INVENTING THE FUTURE
Advanced tech planning logistics and modular construction will enable efficient delivery of THE LINE. And the community will live close to, and in harmony with, nature – which will be 95% untouched by urbanization. Our vertical garden city will mean you are always only two minutes from nature.
