10 Obviously, I am a little biased because I live here. I think that we need to fill some of the gaps with 300+ skyscrapers, Indianapolis might build some 250-300 ft. condos pretty soon.

kinda generic. One somewhat tall building, but not a whole lot else that catches the eye. Not extremely modern looking either. The finer details of the city aren't reflected from a distance in the skyline. 6

I'd give it a 7/10. A lot of gaps and bland buildings.

The skyline will get filled in a little more in the coming years with the planned 20-30 story hotels and apartment/condo buildings. Hopefully another large building like the Bank One tower gets built in the next decade.

It's bigger than I thought it would be, but not really impressive in person. 6.5/10.

Indy is an anomoly in the north... in that it has little in the way of interesting pre-WW2 architecture... though it does have some nice short gems like the Chamber of Commerce Bldg and Majestic.

The 49 story Bank One is awesome, but the rest of the skyscrapers are merely boring boxes... and it seems that all the buildings have a similar color and pattern to them... very beige/white

I do like the way the buildings are positioned though... really makes a dramatic affect

Market Tower and 300 North are boring boxes?

Here are some night shots I took.

The Brickyard isn't really close to downtown, it is located in Speedway, a town on the outskirts of the city.
