In the complex is an indoor water park, a center for the history of the building, hotels, parking lot and a seasonal ice skating rink.

Minneapolis Skyline – Signed Fine Art Print

$19.95$27.95

Information about the Minneapolis Skyline:

The Minneapolis skyline includes many notable buildings, including some of the first "skyscrapers" in the central part of the United States. Several prominent architects have been employed in the design of some of the buildings, such as H. H. Richardson (Minneapolis City Hall) and I.M. Pei. The downtown area is one of the main hubs of business and financial activity in the region. Some of the buildings house offices for the top companies in the world, such as American Express and IBM. The Foshay Tower, built in 1929, was one of the earliest tall buildings in Minneapolis and remained so until 1971. Unfortunately, in the collapse of Wall Street Foshay lost his fortune. Much of the downtown area languished for decades, and the area called "the Gateway district" was especially bad and rundown. During the years of 1957-1956 nearly 1/3 of the entire downtown area had been leveled. Freeways breathed new life into the city with connections to the ever expanding suburbs and Saint Paul. In the following years, building was slow into the 1980's, with only the IDS Tower being the really remarkable building that was added. However, afterwards several others were added, including the Wells Fargo Center, the Campbell Mithun Tower (previously Piper Jaffray) and Capella Tower, built in 1992 as the headquarters of First Bank.
