I was in the Toronto suburbs and I was shocked to see the industrial zones so big !! I have not seen industrial zones like this in the US get so big .My question is have you seen industrial zones in the US get big like this .


Any of the reading I have been doing is America economy is turning into a service sector and industrial zones are small and getting smaller.

I have never ever seen any big industrial zones like this in the US that they have in the Toronto suburbs like this.

Major ones in Atlanta I can think of would be Fulton Industrial and Marietta Blvd on the westside of town.

My company owns 14 million square feet of warehouse in the LA area, and i've looked at them on google earth before. There are huge areas of industry like that in LA, as well as Chicago and NYC because they're very large distribution hubs.

Are you saying that LA and Chicago by looking at the google map seems bigger the industrial zones than the Toronto area and more concentrated ?

I never thought the US had such big industrial zones and so concentrated like in Toronto.

If you go to the city of Mississauga ( population 700,000 people and 288.42 km (111.4 sq mi ) just west of Toronto . It looks like almost 25% of the land is industrial zones .

I never seen this in the US.
There seems to be problem with your link .

Here are a few that I can think of off the top of my hear
Lordestown OH, suburban Cleveland: GM Lordstown Assembly Plant, 2300 Hallock Young Rd SW, Warren, Trumbull, Ohio 44481-9238 - Google Maps

Chrysler Assembly Plant, Suburban Detroit: Chrysler, Chrysler Drive, Auburn Hills, MI - Google Maps

If you go to Detroit there are still many industrial zones lining I75 for the big 3

Those industrial zones seem much smaller and not so concentrated like in the Toronto area.
