Do you mean a skyline away from the CBD? or an actual suburb?

Two obvious choices for Toronto.

1. North York (borough of Toronto) Population ('01): 608,288
Probably the largest secondary skyline in the GTA, but has the advantage as it's really close to the CBD, and it's connected through to the subway.


North York is in the center, TO CBD near the top


2. Mississauga (suburb) Population ('01): 612,925
Mississauga is located west of Toronto, and only operates buses. There have been talks of extending the subway to MCC but it won't happen for a long time- too many lines need to be built inside Toronto proper first. Currently though, a LRT is being studied for the major road (Hurontario). According to Emporis: 205 Completed, 8 U/C, 2 approved, 21 proposed (inclu. 2 50s, 2 45s and at least one 40)

How about Shatin in the New Territories (HK)



There's also Tsuen Wan (HK)



When Nina Tower is finish, it's probably the highest tower that is not located in a city centre.

This is Southfield, MI




These are from urbanohio.com:





It's not nearly as dense as the residential skylines, but for being a solely office skyline, it's not bad.

Eschborn (20.580 inh.) near Frankfurt has an impressive skyline, especially for it's size. But i can't find good pictures of the town...

Tseung Kwan O or Tsuen Wan in HK should be the densest & tallest suburb skyline in the world.

Could some HK forumers post some pics here as I dont know how to post.
