any time during the summer months would be a good time to visit really. So many different festivals are held almost daily in different parts of the metro that I lost count years ago.

The skyline is great, but it needs a 1000 footer to break that plateau. I need to drive down in the next few weeks before it gets colder out.

what plateau? I've always though of Minni's skyline as being mountain-like

Formed by IDS, Wells Fargo, and Capella. What's the height variation on them? A few meters? The picture you posted is great, but toss a 1000 foot building in there and it'd just be perfect and give Minneapolis a new landmark tower. And for the love of Pete put an observation deck in it or re-open the one in IDS.

Oh, question. Can you get into Foshay anymore or do you have to be staying at the hotel to get up there?

I fear there might be other pressing priorities for right now. I'd take a dozen of 25 story condo towers over one 1000 footer any time. Minneapolis already has plenty of height, but we also need to expand in the width ideally in the south- and northward extent of 5th st/warehouse district. The metrodome/downtown east area for example looks like a mine field and is in total need of some major patch up work.
