Everything we know about The North Pole megaproject in Riyadh

The project plans to house the world’s tallest building.

Saudi Arabia is filled with ambition. The Kingdom is home to megaprojects from Neom to the Red Sea. Now, Saudi Arabia Holding Co. has announced The North Pole project, which is described as a city of the future. 

Saudi Arabia Holding Co. CEO Mohammed AlQahtani shared The North Pole megaproject’s plans, which span 306 square metres. Located in the north of Riyadh, it aims to include the world’s tallest building. Rise Tower looks set to be a slim, sleek structure pointing straight into the sky. The height of the building has not yet been confirmed, but it hopes to beat Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, which stands more than 830 metres tall.

The North Pole megaproject focuses on connectivity and sustainability. The site will include bike lanes, pathways, pedestrian-friendly streets and access to nature. Plus, it will boast green credentials and be powered by solar energy as well as renewable sources.

The North Pole sounds like something straight out of a science fiction film, as it will feature air taxis and vertical living. The urban living space will create homes as well as offices. The state-of-the-art transport system will include autonomous vehicles and high-speed underground transport.
