New satellite imagery reveals massive building of horizontal megacity in Saudi Arabia

(ORDO NEWS) — In early 2021, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman approved the construction of a giant “lying skyscraper” that will house up to nine million people.

The building-metropolis, according to the prince, will become the most environmentally friendly in the world.

Work on the construction of a skyscraper 170 kilometers long, half a kilometer high, and only 200 meters wide, called the “Mirror Line” has already begun.

Satellite images show how the Mirror Line construction site is already taking shape, stretching like an arrow through the deserts and mountains of Saudi Arabia.
