This cube-shaped structure will be managed by the new Murabba development company and is expected to add SAR180bn to the country’s non-oil GDP by 2030, creating 334,000 direct and indirect jobs.
Spread Across 25 million Square Meters of Floor Area

The Mukaab will be the centrepiece of the surrounding New Murabba project, which is set to expand the footprint of the capital and house an estimated 350,000 residents over 4,695 acres. Rising to an awe-inspiring height of 1,312 feet, this mega-structure will provide a perfect blend of residences, hotels, office space, and open-air parks and walkways.
But it’s not just the sheer size of The Mukaab that sets it apart – it’s the immersive, futuristic experiences that it promises to offer. Indoors, holographic projections, such as giant-sized people, will create a truly unique and unforgettable atmosphere. The Saudi government will spare no expense towards the development of this mega-structure.
