It will include more than 104,000 residential units, 9,000 hotel rooms, 980,000 square meters of retail space, 1.4 million square meters of office space, 620,000 square meters of leisure assets, and 1.8 million square meters of community facilities.

This announcement comes less than a year after the government revealed plans for a 100-mile skyscraper that will house nine million people, which is already under construction in the futuristic Neom site near the Gulf of Aqaba.
