I give it a 8/10.
I like a lot of the individual buildings and I think the skyline is well balanced.

Bank One is tall but is it good architecture? No.... Des Moines, Charlotte, and even Louisville have built better signature towers. In addition to this, the rest of the buildings offer little in the way of interesting design. So I've always found this skyline somewhat below its potential.

Still not bad 6.5/10

Another thing, I wish the Bank One Tower's two spires have a few strobe lights around it, blinking all day, like you see in Chicago; that would be so awesome! The only thing close to that is the little strobe on the flagpoll on top of the AUL tower.

Yeah, I also wish that Bank One would change the top colors for holidays (like red, white, and blue for 4th of July and green and red for Christmas), same with the top of the Market Tower. We need to add some lights below the bridges like Chicago has on the draw bridges.

Skyline 7 because it does need a little more... downtown 10 because it is vital and clean and there is much more to do than in over 50% of the decayed hells of US Downtowns. Indy as a whole 9, it is a great place that is much overlooked because many are obsessed with dirt and overpopulation.

On the up-and-up

Of course, I too can be a bit biased, as I was once a planner for the City of Indianapolis, so I give it a 7.5. The Bank One Tower (soon to be renamed Chase Tower) is a great anchor right in the center of the city.

Four new towers have been proposed, with all to be completed by 2006.

Currently, the Conrad Hilton, at 23 stories, is under construction. Two residential towers on the former site of Market Square Arena will begin construction in October, and due to significant demand, they will now be 30-stories each (originally planned as 22-stories each). Finally, mall-magnate, Simon Property Group will construct a new 18-story tower with construction to begin in September.

I know that none of these will be over 500-feet, but will definately fill some gaps to the skyline.
