There are many (although pretty empty) suburb cities in China. I remember passing through one (or maybe quite a few) on the way from Shanghai to Suzhou.

I have not heard about these empty cities but the story sounds very interesting! I will research to educate myself on this matter. Thanks!

I don't think there are enough photos of Sunny Isles Beach, FL.

Well, that's all there is until more stuff makes it out of the ground.

Great find, isaidso! And great skyline too! I was not aware that North York's skyline was so developed! Any more pics of this suburban skyline?

Thanks JP. It's the best one of North York I've come across, but I found a couple shots. The main street running through it is Yonge and it's just starting to see some big towers go up on it.

How North York relates to downtown. This is looking south:


Courtesy of the Toronto Star

It will take another 15-20 years minimum, but North York looks like it will develop into a proper secondary downtown. Scarborough Town Centre to the east is further behind but is heading in that direction as well. Mississauga is arguably the 2nd biggest of the 3, but is technically its own city.

In addition to these there are other nodes developing in Etobicoke (Humber Bay Shores), Vaughan, Markham, Eglinton/Yonge, and Oakville. Then you start bumping up against other cities with their own downtowns like Pickering, Ajax, Oshawa, Hamilton, Milton, Guelph, Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge, Barrie, etc.

Correction: Century City is NOT a city nor a suburb of Los Angeles. Century City is right at the border outside of Beverly Hills,
within the city limit of LA. West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, and Santa Monica are all suburbs of Los Angeles (yet entirely surrounded by it).
Century City (and Westwood, the line of highrises) is a highrise office and residential district. AKA, the Downtown of West LA.
So in conclusion, every building you see here is within the city limit of LA. More impressive is that many other skyscrapers
are in the opposite direction, hidden by Century City and those hills, or is out of frame. Here's another photo of Century City, Los Angeles, by me.

Where is that in relation to Zocolo Square? Sorry, but I was in MC for just 5 hours so my knowledge of the layout isn't all that good.

North York is part of the city of Toronto and not a true suburb the way Mississauga is.

Santa Fe CBD is located 30 minutes off the western suburbs from The Zocalo Square
