I think the most amazing thing about the Minneapolis skyline is the fact it is so wonderful with the St Paul skyline roughly 8-9 miles away...and the St Paul skyline is pretty impressive too...

St Paul







The last photo displays the Minneapolis skyline in the background.

America's most underestimated skyline. Minneapolis is an example of a well-planned urban city. Skyline forms to create a mountain, which makes it so appealing.

Very dense! Great visual appeal with the three large towers by three great architects (Philip Johnson, Cesar Pelli and Pei, Cobb, Freed.) An underrated city.

And add the peculiar presence of the St. Paul skyline (really, not many cities in the world have another large city just a few miles away...) and you have a unique confluence of architecture and urban planning.

I knew Minneaplis had a pretty good skyline, but this is way over my expectations, the way cities should be built!

Cheers from Sweden!

A very underrated skyline within the US. I rate it a 8!

Not bad, 7.5

They need to fill that gap by the Foshay Tower. Oh yeah, and raze those "Riverside Apartments".

I'm surprised some rated it 3 or less...it's not THAT bad on any count!

I agree it is an underrated and often ignored skyline and it is very attractive!
Also Mpls is a great city to visit.
