The US Trust for Public Land's Best US Park System 5 years in a row.
#1 Biking City in US.
Six professional sports teams. (And a shout-out to the reigning WNBA champs!)
Home to 18 Fortune 500 corporations.

And surprisingly, America's 3rd most expensive city to live, at least according to The Economist. (I personally find this questionable. I've lived both in Washington DC and Minneapolis and DC certainly is more expensive in real estate prices. But Minneapolis is also certainly expensive in real estate taxes. That said, Minneapolis also has an unusually high quality of services offered by local governments.

The 3rd-most-populous metro in the American Midwest after Chicago and Detroit deserves a bit of love... :



And this is just one of the two skylines.

Minneapolis is one of the most expensive cities in the US or did you mean to write least expensive?

Rather surprisingly, most expensive. The Economist lists their criteria as cost of goods, insurance, housing, taxes and cars. (The first column is World Rank, BTW.)
However I do find it hard to believe, but they are a venerable publication that's been in business over 150 years so I assume they know what they are doing.

However I do find it hard to believe, but their data is correct, apparently. It's a venerable publication that's been in business over 150 years, so I assume they know what they are doing.

Maybe it has to do with how they are weighting the criteria.

Are these LA satellite clusters growing much or is tower construction concentrated downtown? What is that cluster shrouded in smog in the upper left?

Century City, which is not a "city" but rather a "downtown west" created in the 60-70's to cater to the westside, is getting a few new buildings, but not much.

Specifically these twin towers:



But the boom in towers is concentrated in Downtown most definitely.
