The crystal court is one of my favorite places. It's also adjacent to another of my favorite places - Gavidea (sp?) Commons. Just take the skyway from Crystal Court second level that's marked for Gavidea Commons.

Nice layout; open space; but after all, it's just an office building. Architecture appealing but not especially unique.

It had great restaurants and shops and now everything, including the architecture, seems worn out, out of style.

The Crystal Court is kind of cool to sit and have some lunch in but otherwise, its nothing spectacular. I'm pretty sure you can still go to the top and view the cities, but not sure.

If you visit downtown Minneapolis for Nicollet Mall shopping, you may pass through the IDS Building and Center as you walk the marvelous skyway system.

You have to go to the top floor here and maybe get some dinner at Windows of Minnesota. A little spendy but well worth it!

The IDS tower is the tallest building west of Chicago and houses fine dining as well as offices. Go to the top at the viewing level for a vista of the entire downtown and a view toward the other twin city, St. Paul.
