Compared to most large metros, St. Paul’s skyline is modest with only 15 high-rises over 300 feet. None qualify as a skyscraper. Wells Fargo Place is the tallest at 471 feet with 37 floors. The tower is clad in Finnish granite. The office complex was called the Minnesota World Trade Center when it opened in 1987. Similar to most buildings in downtown St. Paul, Wells Fargo Place is connected to the skywalk. This system of elevated, temperature-controlled walkways allows Minnesotans to travel coat-free even during cold winter days.
