I can't tell for sure, but I think the down-tilted glass walls of the AT&T tower (1991) are just visible from behind the Campbell-Mithune tower. Based on the Carlyle being visible, this can't be more than about 4 years old.
The photo was taken a few months ago I believe. You can see the pylon construction for the new Lafayette Bridge.

Of course!

Here I am looking for non-existent detail in the far background, while construction of the new Lafayette bridge is in my face, front and center. Weird how the mind works (or doesn't work) sometimes.

I'm guessing from the top of the Shoreview antenna towers you could easily see the Minneapolis and St. Paul skylines, and maybe even the St. Cloud skyline too.

Maybe, St. Cloud doesn't really have a skyline. Can probably see Bloomington's skyline of course

There's a question - Is there anywhere where you can see all three skylines at once?

On top of the Mall of America Parking Ramp. 7th floor facing north, it's perfect, I was just there. Minneapolis is easily visible to your direct north. St. Paul is visible, although not as easy to your east/northeast. And Bloomington is all around you, to the west and east.

Bloomington has a skyline. As does Brooklyn Center, albeit very small.
