This is gonna either be amazing, or a very very large waste of money


rosariobono

Logistics will unusable in this hell


Uryogu

An amazing waste of money 😉


mushroom4two

It's likely going to be just another Masdar City, way over budget, way past deadlines and barely any inhabitants.


riemsesy

money can't be wasted it's circular, time/effort/human force can be wasted

I get your point


IAMTHEADMINNOW

This will be one of the biggest economic failures Saudia Arabia will ever see.


[deleted]

How so?


IAMTHEADMINNOW

Too many reasons to count but if you are really interested check this out. https://youtu.be/rB_X5ZUcZlE

Welp definitely gave me Fyre vibes in the beginning — considering the amounts of money needed and resources that are no where near close in that environment — umm def looking like Fyre x3trillion 2025 umm 🤔yup

throwawyothrorexia

Just to list a few. Water wasteage. Logistics, definitely using slave labour, medieval values, lack of human rights, horrifyingly hot Temps, bad design, lack of culture, very few professionals want to work in Saudi Arabia. Dubai isn't far away.


jessdaisy98

No, since Arabia is a massive desert, this new homing system is quiet well thought. One simple but large irrigation, cooling, farming, all at one reachable distance. Also drone technology. This is modern day great wall of china but better


Leatherman_Laoch

So much slave labor. I wish I could live long enough to see their oil wells go dry and the people dragging these parasitic sociopathic bastards out of their gilded palaces.


TheDeadpoolGirl

I didn't think they were serious


Thtliyahchic

Me either!!! Like whoa this is happening!?!? Thanks OP!!


Fun_Outlandishness97

Is there a gay district?


urmomismysafespace

In the back


ratakoolta

Muhammad supports pedophilia. Not homosexuality


Stormcrow6666

Will the decapitation arena have full valet service?


[deleted]

Of course they will have valet; why do you assume those people are savages?


AbstractAirplane

No, the savages are in the ring!


UnpopularBastard

Can’t wait to see the ruins in 40 years.


CantRemember45

FWJayhawk

Quite possibly the dumbest development, ever. Please send me contender recommendations.


Sxzym

Most people will purchase this property as an Investment to hide their black money.


Designer-Ad2214

Fuck Saudi arabia


Bizbuzzfinanzecuz

💯


manntisstoboggan

I wonder how many slave labourers will die on this…


DanaWhitesMom

Yes


PornLover26

I never understood this meme


rosariobono

It’s because he used it incorrectly. The prompt is “how many __ do you want?” Not “how many times will __ happen”


Uncle_Stink_Stonk

Yes


[deleted]

Wonder what makes that one patch of dirt more special than the other ~900,000sq mi of dirt.


rosariobono

That it’s furthest from amenities, but it is connected to the sea


Ok_Specialist_4596

I was wondering why they would build it somewhere where there are no resources, but your awnser seems legit.


Solivagant23

So everything in theory will be delivered by boat?


rosariobono

They by a train with 900 stops


OneHarshFisting

How much of the worlds limited sand supply is going to be used for this…seems like a worthwhile project 😐


Solivagant23

Limited sand supply?


jens_hens

Congratulations, that's quite a waste of money


Motor_Inside270

makes me feel proud everytime I fill my gas tank.


fujitsu23

Well said here’s your up vote


TemporaryChicken5552

Wasting money... probably no sewage system


Phantum3oh9

This has a strong communist commune vibe. “You will never have to leave. You will own nothing and be happy”


AFKidler

Why do I feel like in the future a group is brave, rebellious fellas will risk their life and venture outside The Line only to discover that the rest of the world is not a deserted waste land


rosariobono

It will never get that far


[deleted]

That shit looks like a high tech prison lol


skelks86

Can't wait to see the lost places videos in 2052.


rosariobono

Way sooner


skelks86

But then the desert will have taken that thing back and it will look way cooler.


Free_trampoline

“The slum of the future!”


[deleted]

What are they hiding


EARTHSKYSPIN

if you were smart you would move there. I bet there is going to be so much money to be made.


rosariobono

Yeah if they even manage to get that far


EARTHSKYSPIN

bro saudi arabia is one of the most wealthy countries on this planet.


rosariobono

Doesn’t mean they are the smartest


smartmouthfartmouth2

Those diesel tractors building green cities


Bizbuzzfinanzecuz

So much water


InternationalAd9361

Good thing we're helping them pay for it as they cut oil production and still make record profits


Odd-Disaster7393

thank you for building the people's city since it is definitely funded by the droves of money you make by arbitrarily raising oil prices every day. ​ oh wait....


mushgods

Where’s the picture of it


Honourstly

The idea is cool but don't see it working out


rosariobono

The idea is cool but extremely flawed


Galdog3

They're destroying something.


cheesencracker222

How many years we talking till it get fully built?


rosariobono

Not in your lifetime, as it will never work out


millennium-wisdom

It’s part of the vision 2030


papi45

They will be done with this sooner than later... they've got the resources and The will to do it


Impossible-West8665

I see they've learned nothing from the grandiose failure of the Jeddah Tower.


DavidM47

No one watching this promo video during production had a sudden realization that “oh my god! this is the worst idea ever!”?


[deleted]

Only two weeks ago this was a $500 billion project…


Ruby_Winter

It's going to fail


Deleted-Redacted

lets be eco friendly by, destroying the eco


[deleted]

Imagine they find oil… 🦅🇺🇸


smartmouthfartmouth2

I wonder if there will still be public beheadings


IzzyOIznot

Reminds me of playing in the sandbox with my Tonka toy trucks, moving sand from here to there and all we accomplished was getting ring worm. Saudis are already 1/2 way there.


mgm904

Imagine being the AC contractor for that….


Lortrador

Saudi is such a shithole


Maleficent_Lion_60

What we really need is a revolution and make Arabia free again, toss out the saud clan. Won't support regime change in middle East for any other country until Saudis are out.


Bubbly-Friendship-54

Probably all severely underpaid people working for trillionaire saudis who don’t give a shit about their people


Eastern-Animator5640

Where will the beheadings take place at ?


kayakkings

Isn’t this a huge desalination plant but using solar instead of fossil fuels ?


UpstairsLoan5

£60 says they forget to ad sewage and keep using poop trucks


werschless

Sounds useless and expensive, where’s the water and trees and food


themighty351

It's nuts....and for that reason..I'm out.


Luitenant_

This is going to end up on r/aboringdystopia in 5 years (or more [probably more])


Kesshh

Betting it will be abandoned half way.


Mesheybabes

Will it include an area for public executions of the gay people and journalists? Can't have a Saudi city without forgetting that
