Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia wants to build the world’s largest city. This might be the largest urban project ever.
The city will be completely new, will be built on the Red Sea coast, and will be called NEOM.
The new city will be financed by the Saudi government and private investors.
According to Business Insider, The $500 billion mega-city, which is expected to expand into Egypt and Jordan, will cover an area of 10,230 square miles ( more than 33 times the land area of New York City).. Furthermore, a bridge over the Red Sea linking the new city, Egypt and the rest of Africa is planned to be build, in order to allow the formation of the first independent special zone that will stretch in three countries.
