Urban blueprints provided by the CEO of Saudi Arabia Holding Co. depict an ultramodern metropolis with the tallest tower in the world.
Mohammed AlQahtani, CEO of Saudi Arabia Holding Co., has announced urban designs for a 306 sq km “North Pole Project” in northern Riyadh. According to sister publication Commercial Interior Design, the Rise Tower, which would eventually become the tallest tower in the world, is the focal point of the designs for this “city of the future.”
The exact height of the envisioned Rise Tower was not made public, although it would need to surpass Dubai’s 828-meter Burj Khalifa.
through implementing pedestrian-friendly streets, bike lanes, and walkways, as well as through using solar energy and other renewable sources, there is a focus on connectedness and sustainability. Public areas have been planned to be more climatically adaptable and to give locals and visitors better access to the outdoors.
Outside of Riyadh, the North Pole offers everything from vertical apartments to air taxis. Plans have also mentioned new modes of transportation such autonomous vehicles, high-speed underground transportation, and others.
Imagery suggests that in order to ensure simple access and seamless circulation between them, residential neighborhoods, commercial districts, and industrial zones will adopt the shape of a succession of clusters.
The North Pole is positioned to increase the standard of living in the nation, with a strong emphasis on employment creation, like many of KSA’s new wave of super-projects.
AlQahtani claimed on LinkedIn that “The North Pole project seamlessly blends modernity with the beauty of nature, delivering a unique living experience.” The initiative has the potential to redefine the economic and social landscape of the area and bring about a spectacular shift. This innovative initiative, which intends to improve living standards, is anticipated to increase job opportunities, draw foreign investment, and improve Riyadh’s reputation as a contemporary metropolis.
