Saudi prince’s bold plan for a $640b futuristic megacity

IT IS said to be unlike anything the world has seen before — and that may well be right.
Saudi Arabia’s visionary Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, 32, has offered a glimpse the $640 billion futuristic megacity that will be Saudi Arabia’s next economic powerhouse and it looks very much at odds with the image of the ultraconservative kingdom we’ve seen before.
The project, dubbed NEOM, is part of the young prince’s vision of social and economic changes geared towards a more progressive future for Saudi Arabia.

The Crown Prince and heir to the throne in Saudi Arabia, Mohammed bin Salman, has announced he wants to transform Saudi Arabia into a place that welcomes all religions and he is planning for his country to begin building a $640 billion mega-city, tentatively called “NEOM” that will be at the north-end of the Red Sea, in close proximity to Israel, Egypt, and Jordan. He is calling this massive city “humanity’s next chapter” and it will be approximately 33 times larger than New York City in terms of geographical area.

The 32 year old prince has suddenly caught my attention with his religion-melding and Babylon-esque plans. I would encourage us all to study this out further.
