Capella Tower is probably one of my favorite skyscrapers in the US.

Beautiful building and beautiful skyline 9/10

The picture was taken from an observation deck on top of Foshay Tower. The building you see in the middle is called Wells Fargo Center.

Very interesting photo. US cities seem to go from skyscrapers to a sea of residential within a few blocks.

Most of Minneapolis outside of downtown is steetcar suburbia built between 1890 and 1930. There are village style commercial nodes built thoughout the city but you can't see them from the air because of the tree cover and the fact that they are built to the same scale as the residential neighborhoods around them.
