Yeah, but I don't think that people are benchmarking our skyline against Minneapolis. I always hear people mention that our skyline isn't New York or Chicago.

I think that a few of these taller buildings (if they actually get built) will do wonders for the height issue. In addition, they should bring some life to the monotony that is the downtown high rises. I must say that when I recently visited downtown LA, while they certainly don't have the sheer concentration of high rises, their buildings look far more interesting (with the exception of the Transamerica Pyramid).
