I am not aware of any client toolkits that specifically cater to  
C# ... but there are some that are more-or-less agnostic of the back  
end scripting.  This is primarily because they work with OGC services  
and so there is no server-side scripting to be done :)

You could start with something like ka-Map or OpenLayers to build  
your user interface and replace any existing backend scripts  
(config.php, init.php and tile.php to start with) with your c#  
equivalents ... then any new tools that needed server side components  
could be done in c#.

If you do tackle this for ka-Map and would like to contribute it,  
please let me know and I will incorporate your code into ka-Map for  
others to use.
