Location
by the Humber
Oak Brook is part of Chicago's sprawling suburbs, the way that Vaughan is of Toronto, but Oak Brook is more like Woodbridge if it remained unmerged from Vaughan. Oak Brook may be small, but DuPage County has about 1,000,000 people in it, so it's not like there's a 418 foot skyscraper alone in the middle of the prairie.

Thanks for the interesting insight.
So I guess DuPage County could be compared to York Region.

I wonder where the most remote skyscraper is in North America; i.e. in a place that is not part of a suburban/metro type of situation. I was intrigued about the one mentioned above but it's located in a very suburban environment that surrounds it entirely.
