Laval's not so bad, it's like a taller Oakville.

Haha! That's too funny
That would make a nice thread, perfect-twin buildings in different cities!
I wonder which one was built first...

According to an Ottawa office space directory, it was built in 1989. Not sure about Laval's.

You twin building thread is an awesome idea! You should definitely start one.

Here is a 40 year old skyline frozen in time:

MafaldaBoy from Urban Toronto took a nice shot of Markham's emerging skyline:

Markham is slowly taking shape.. once the Ciniplex opens it will start to liven up a bit, and once the Marriot is built there will be hotels, restaurants, etc. that allow it to become a true downtown.

Burlington's downtown is actually quite nice, it has the feel of a small ontario town but has several 10-20 floor buildings and is about 5x the size of the average small town..

I wasn't jabbing at Burlington, I think it's a very nice suburb. I was jabbing at the mtl suburb, because it's not nice.

Somewhere in the GTA:

Part of Mississuaga (I think)

Oakville?

Burlington (other clumps semi-visible too)

Stoney Creek clumps

Part of Lincoln Fields' large highrise selection.

West Ottawa (mainly Tunney's Pasture)


I'll be fairly busy this fall, but can probably get a few more pictures for this thread.

Vancouver is the king of suburban skylines but was hoping someone else had posted all of them by now. I can think of nearly 10 suburban Vancouver skylines off the top of my head, including 3 just for Burnaby. *too lazy to do it myself*

Burnaby Metrotown
Burnaby Brentwood
Burnaby Edmonds
North Vancouver
West Vancouver
Richmond
New Westminster
Surrey (how many in Surrey just one?)
Coquitlam
Port Moody

Did I miss anything? Are there any tower clusters in Poco? Langley? Abbotsford?

The only difference between them being Houston has a big vibrant downtown with lotsa skyscrapers.

Houston has a vibrant downtown? You mean vibrant, like, for cars to park?

sorry Rico, let me clarify: I meant a mini-version of the old Houston (1970s-80s?) that is prevalent in many SSP'ers minds like pictured below

Is Mullet-ville what you guys call Longueuil? Because if so, that's hilarious
