Minneapolis is the city (along with Seattle) in the US, that I most want to go to, of the ones I haven't been to.

Its skyline show why the US own at skylines. Asia builds really tall buildings, but bar huge cities like HK, their skylines are never - in my opinion - as beautiful as for instance Minneapolis and Seattles.

9.5 - perfectly balanced, beautiful buildings, great city.

Awesome. Looks great at night, but loses some points for a couple of annoying boxy buildings that don't mix well. Still, a 9/10.

over 40 stories, Minny rules.
under 40 stories, Minny is bland.

So...a 7.5...it's trending in a wonderful direction.

I know I am a homer but I love driving towards this skyline on my way to work every day. It will be even more spectacular after the Nicollet is built.

9/10

The problem with Minneapolis is that the skyline has not changed for the last 14 years since the First Bank Tower was built (now I believe the name has changed). The skyline, especially viewed from Washington Ave at the UofM, has always been spectacular. I used to sit on the plaza of Coffman Union just to enjoy the skyline at dusk. I would have given it 10 but I have to settle for 8.5 now due to lack of new addition to the overall skyline - the IDS and the old Norwest Bank Tower (now I believe the name has changed) have always been so classic to look at. By the way, what is this new Nicollet building?

I guess this picture must have been taken from one of the new row of student apartments at the end of Washington Ave. I just never know that Metrodome can look so close from this angle.

By the way, can anyone post the Weisman Museum on this thread as well? I have to tell you that I have been back to Minneapolis for the last 5 years and I have been impressed with the way the University is changing itself now. There are now a lot of nice new buildings on campus.

There is a picture on the last page of the Minneapolis developement thread in the Midwest subforum. It is a condo tower that will be the 5th tallest building in the city. Consruction is supposed to start next year. It has an arc through the whole of the building that will be lit up and should be pretty kick ass. It looks very Minneapolis.

It is planned for the lower Nicollet Mall at 9th or 10th st or so, next to WCCO.

Also the sea of parking lots on the edges of downtown are quickly being converted into neighborhoods of 4-8 story condos with retail on the ground floors. Downtown Minneapolis is beginning a paradigm shift.

Cool.....Let's get those built. Will they eventually remove the dome as well?

Happy New Year to you all.
