9/10. Very nice, except for the spire and the round thing on the roof. The spire looks more like an antenna, and the round thing looks incomplete.

7/10. The tower portion is gorgeous with chamfered stainless steel edges that evoke the Twins. The rings, spire and base are big detractors.

I hadn't noticed before how ugly the base is. I also hate the spire for being counted as part of the building's architectural height.
