With $500 billion in funding, Saudi Arabia's Neom, an urban development in the northwest of the country, can build whatever they want. In addition to their line-shaped city, they've recently announced this wild-looking Epicon complex of skyscrapers to be built near the Gulf of Aqaba.
The two towers will house, surprise, a luxury hotel and luxury residences.
Nearby is a third tower located on the beach, which will be a 120-room resort.
The resort will also house 45 villas meant to blend into the desert. Each will have beach access, as well as a private pool.
"A highly attractive visitor destination and an optimum place to live and thrive, Epicon's guests and residents can expect a truly immersive and life-affirming experience. The luxurious residences and beach villas aim to deliver new levels of livability through cutting-edge innovations, world-class services and first-class experiences, positioning the resort as a benchmark for iconic living."
"Guests and residents of Epicon will enjoy unrestricted access to world-class facilities, complemented by views of one of the most desirable shorelines in NEOM. Amenities include a state-of-the-art gym, library, workspaces, pools and lounges."
Strangely, the press release does not mention the architect or architecture firm responsible, though with projects like this, that's typically a bragging point. Any guesses as to who?
