Toronto Canada Cityscape
Looking across the city next to the CN Tower, I was overwhelmed with the proliferation of high-rise apartment buildings. Toronto, Canada is distinctive in its abundance of high-rise apartment islands and the downtown area has them in abundance. Most of my life, I have lived in very horizontal cities. Phoenix, Arizona is the polar opposite of Toronto. Size is not the issue. Toronto is only about half a populous as Phoenix, but has many, many times the number of high-rise buildings. Now that I live in Provo, Utah, the buildings have to compete with high mountains and so the effect, even in downtown Salt Lake City is modified.
