Very interesting pictures, Yellowknife looks very impressive for a city with such a small population. Those winter temperatures look a bit chilly- I'm surprised that the temperature averages 21C in July though, very pleasant.

with a 20 000 pop, the city looks massive.
4/10 would do it.

Nah they're both... residential, commercial, and also government actually.
There's still houses and even some suburbs in Yellowknife. It's just a small northern town. (well huge for the north)

9.5/10 Very impresive view for a city of 17.000 !!! I assume that most of these office buldings are mainly used by government institutions and national businesses, but still the number and hights ... big wow

Well suprizingly some of them are apartments, with only the 'nicer' ones as government. Most business stays low to the ground.
And yes that's a lovely pic!

And so does everyone else.
17,000 people live there in the far North. If you can find a better skyline for those settings, I'll give you $100.00 USD

Could it be because it's more efficient and economical to heat up an apartment building rather than hundreds of individual houses?

I can't give it more than that as it won't be fair to other cities which have better skylines. They deserve what they have though.

Yes that would make sense. Apartments are cheaper anyways to build up north.
