9/10. 801 Grand is a bit too off to the side of downtown to make the skyline nicely balanced, but considering it has a better skyline than some cities 5 times its size and a gorgeous state capital not shown in the pics, this skyline should be admired.

Considering it's relatively small size I would say it's pretty damn good in height, balance, and density.
7.5

Probably the best skyline in the world relative to population. It's spectacular that it can have such a huge skyline with 200,000 people and under 600,000 in the metro. An anomaly in modern society!

Des Moines is cool. Generally a good skyline but the tallest tower looks a little out of place and it could stand to have some infill. 7.5
