|Located just east of Phoenix, Mesa is Phoenix's largest suburb. Mesa is one of the countries fastest growing cities, the City's population has nearly doubled in size since 1987. |
Mesa's estimated population is 452,856 as of 2005, making it larger than some more well-known cities such as Miami, Kansas City, Minneapolis, and Pittsburgh. Yet while Pittsburg and Miami's tallest building's are both 64 floors high, Mesa has only a few buildings over 10 stories, and the City's tallest is only 16 stories high.
Today Mesa continues to grow as more people and families move in to the ever growing suburbia that is the East Valley.
