Wells Fargo Tower at Night - The Brightest Building in the Minneapolis Skyline

Wells Fargo Tower at Night - MPLS Skyline Art | William Drew Photography

The Wells Fargo Center in Minneapolis is certainly the brightest and most unique skyscraper in the city. Formerly known as Norwest Center, is the third-tallest building in Minneapolis, Minnesota, after the IDS Center and the Capella Tower. Completed in 1988, it is 774 feet tall. 

The center was designed with a modernized art deco style by César Pelli. It is considered by many to be a homage to 30 Rockefeller Plaza in New York City. It is brilliantly lit at night from sunset through midnight, with floodlamps pointing up from the setback rooftops to illuminate the sides of the building. Despite this, it was recognized by the United States Environmental Protection Agency as one of the 100 most energy efficient buildings in the USA. 

I have taken thousands of photos that include the Wells Fargo Center as part of the Minneapolis skyline, but for this photo, I wanted to singularity feature this beautifully lit skyscraper. The green light that you see reflecting off the building near the bottom middle of the photo, is from the nearby Capella Tower as its halo was lit in green that night.
