According to reports by Arch Daily, a Zaha Hadid-designed tower is coming soon to NEOM’s Trojena region. For those unfamiliar, Trojena is going to one of the four regions in NEOM and it will offer year-round outdoor skiing and adventure sports. Called the Discovery Tower, this skyscraper is expected to be 330 meters tall and might be master-planned by LAVA architects. The crystal-like skyscraper will be located on a mountain and it will be overlooking a central man-made lake. Although, it’s worth keeping in mind that the precise details regarding its location are yet to be disclosed.

At this point, it’s worth mentioning that this tower may house retail outlets, restaurants, exhibition spaces, and even observation decks. Not to mention, a cable car might also connect the same to the lakeside development. Moreover, this tower is going to be a recognisable symbol, as mentioned in the report, and it is expected to be located 50km from the Gulf of Aqaba.
