I guess you did. But you turn off alot of people already. Damage has been done. You still don't rate correctly at all.

Oh and I am glad they did not gave you a visa to the USA. Hope they never will. Hope they give it instead to some of my family in Colombia since they are desperately trying to come to the USA.

The skyline just says north and cold with its blue and icy looking buildings. Some great funky styled ones which integrate well too. Add height, bulk.

This one's a 9 for me.

Gotta love the minneapolis skyline....








The parking lot front and center in that last picture is the site of the new Twins ballpark (along with the proposed North Loop Village featuring a ton of high rise residential). Should be amazing once it is finished.

Take out the 2 giants and this is the best skyline in NA and the least appreciated. The city is relatively unchic and that goes against it but the lay out, density, style and overall impact is superb. This is actually a GREAT skyline.

7.5/10 Even as someone who lives in the Twin Cities. Maybe I don't appreciate it because I drive by it all the time

Well, before the databases went down, Minneapolis's skyline was 17th best in the world. Quite an achievement for a place most people outside North America know little about.

8.5/10 Doesn't get enough attention especially that first skyscraper.

Gave it an 8.5/10. Very underrated skyline. I've always loved it.

I understand the Carlyle tower is lighted at night now. I haven't been able to see it yet. Does anyone have any pics from across the river. I miss Mpls.

Here's the newest tower, completed earlier this month. It's all residential and about 470 feet.





Note: not my pictures, taken from minnescraper.com, no source listed. Check out that site for more developments.

There is a 656 foot tower thats been approved as well as a new (rumored supertall) office building being announced mid-April.
