What to expect from The Mirror Line project at NEOM?

A city with an ideal climate

The Line at NEOM has been designed to have an ideal climate — a microclimate that ensures maximum benefits from sunlight, natural air entry and shade, and creates a natural balance in the movement of the air.

Moreover, there will be open green spaces throughout the city to provide relief for residents and visitors.

Easy access

The two buildings of The Line will be connected via walkways, with a high-speed train running underneath them that will help people residing within the city to travel between the two maximum points within 20 minutes.

Free from carbon emissions

By abandoning traditional carbon-intensive infrastructures, such as cars and streets, The Line will be made carbon neutral or free from carbon emissions.

In addition to providing 100% renewable energy, the integration of nature with open spaces throughout the city will also play a key role in the quality and purity of the air.

Improved quality of life

The Line will house world-class preventive healthcare facilities that will not only prepare residents for longer life but also contribute to their well-being.

Moreover, the car and street-free environment of The Line and its 100% sustainable transportation system will also make the city free from pollution and traffic accidents.

A conglomeration of business growth & prosperity

The city’s pollution-free life will form a high-density conglomerate that looks to create 380,000 job opportunities by 2030.
