I love Mpls's skyline. I think most of the buildings are unique and beautiful. And, it is constantly changing.

I remember the skyline in the 40's when the light colored building with the pyramid top was the tallest in town. Real impressive skyline now with the right mix. I give it a 9.

Here I offer you a mirror image of sdtj's second picture posted 2 May above, from the other side of the bridge (though on the same bank of the MI river). This picture was taken while on a hike along the river in late April.

The city planners really did their homework on this skyline!

very nice skyline. The second best in the midwest. The IDS is one of the best glass towers in the US. The wells fargo center and the 225 south sixth are some of the best modern skyscrappers in the country. The Caryle and the Nicollet should look great when completed

It has a great skyline but lacks density outside the skyscrapers-core downtown so I'll give it 7/10

The objective is to rate the skyline, not the city.


Yeah, and YOU'VE been to Minneapolis!

For me, the most impressive thing about Mpls is the skywalks, not the skyline. Generally, it's ok...not too dense and not too spread out. But except for the circular building that looks like it has a catwalk around the roof, none of the buildings have any distinction. The tall brown one looks like it was plucked right out of Manhattan. IDS looked cutting edge at the time it was built, now it just looks oppressive.

Mpls has the worst winter climate of any large American city. Spend any amount of time there in winter and you'll be eternally grateful for those skywalks.

6 out of 10.
