Rate Indy's skyline compared to what? The skylines of the world? Skylines of the US? Skylines of Indiana? It would change depending. I give it 6/10, not enough density for a city of it's size and overall architechture is pretty bland. Downtown is cool though, there is a diffence between a nice downtown and a nice skyline

well, a new 44-story tower is proposed, making that 3 towers over 30 stories due by 2010. A lot of infill that is constantly going on is making Indy jump up the charts...

The new 44-story will be the City's 2nd-tallest and will be built a few blocks south of the core, so it will really elongate the skyline much like Atlanta. It is a Hotel-InterContinental and will really make a big impression on Indy.

It has a large city population like 12th in the US but its metro population is a different story. So when consider it has a relatively medium sized metro population it isnt that bad.

I have no idea why everyone is saying it's so weak, because it isn't. you guys looked at the pictures before you said that, right? look what Indyman wrote about the population. I actually really enjoy it. it's very nice. 9/10
