We should take into consideration, that Minneapolis's population is below 400k, far less than that of Boston or Dallas. And on the metro scale, there are actually two downtown cores, Minneapolis and Saint Paul.

From the series 36 Views of the IDS Center. The relatively new Hiawatha LRT is a popular but expensive addition to the BMS Metro transit cityscape. It goes from downtown Minneapolis to the airport and then to the Mall of America. Fare revenue recovers about 12 percent of what it costs to own and operate it, but area residents love it.

Not to many highrises all over the cityscape, but few and high building with nice architecture. 8/10
