That is a tough question to answer unless you have been to Toronto. What are those suburbs like and maybe we can point you in the right direction.

When you say "comparable to Markham"...... are you referring to this?

Markham, Ontario, Canada

That's pretty much almost any second tier suburb.

Wow, I've never seen houses packed that tightly together. Ugh...

Looks more like Minneapolis then any suburb I have ever been in. We actually have yards and green space in the suburbs. I can't reach out my window and touch my neighbors house like you can in Minneapolis.

Depends on the block. There are blocks in Phillips like that. The houses are more spaced in my neighborhood.

It looks nothing like Minneapolis. Maybe some of the suburbs somewhere (I have seen suburbs like that in other places, and have visited a couple in the Twin Cities that reminded me of the photo -- tighly packed, new, cookie cutter construction, no trees, car-dominated, fairly dense but not mixed use -- only residential; I can't remember off-hand where those were -- north somewhere, I think -- but the people who lived there chose them because they were affordable. More space for the money). Minneapolis is actually fairly "suburban" in the sense that the houses are not generally packed tighly together. (not to mention that there is a lot more landscaping and mature trees in the city or any older suburb, and the houses, not garages and driveways, look out on the street).

To the OP: since it sounds like none of us are familiar with those areas mentioned, you'd get more useful answers if you could describe the areas a bit more and we'll see if we can come up with a match.
