I agree. It's way bigger than what you'd expect. Yellowknife had a population of 19,234 in 2011.

Looking forward to the end of the decade Ft. MacMurray, Alberta is going to surprise a few people. Only 67,000 people live there, but there's a 149m office tower proposed for that town. That's taller than anything in Phoenix. Ft. Mac is growing like gangbusters.

Perth, Australia is world's most isolated big city. Nearly 3,000 km away, Adelaide is the closest big city.

Auckland, New Zealand. It is not technically isolated but it is isolated from other cities with very tall buildings and towers.
