It is impossible for those numbers to be correct. I’m willing to accept a building 1600 ft tall 75 ft wide costing $100 to 200 billion. There is no way in hell even a 10 ft wall for 75 MI costing less than $200 billion.

[Jan 2021](https://www.arabnews.pk/node/1791156/saudi-arabia) article shows a straight lone with underground service. [Undated](https://www.worldconstructiontoday.com/news/saudi-arabia-to-build-largest-buildings-in-the-world-at-neom/) article says there be a 500m tower at each end of The Line. Nothing else says the entire project will be 500m and the wsj link is behind a paywall. Log in to Reply The article you linked mentions nothing about how tall it’ll be; considering most of it will be underground, I kinda doubt that there’ll be buildings that tall in the linear city once construction is complete. Oh yeah, it also says that it’ll be a linear city with most of the infrastructure under the area intended for habitation, not a single building. It does, however, say that The Line will be 110 miles long. I get that reading is hard, but come on. It’s not even that much longer than a paper you’d be expected to write in high school.
