City of Des Moines Skyline Cam

When you want to see the sun setting against the skyline of Des Moines in Iowa, this is the cam to view. You might need to wait until it partially sinks down behind the buildings otherwise you may find your eyes starting to water as the sun shines directly into the lens.

Focus instead on 801 Grand, the forty-five story skyscraper that, when the sun isn’t casting its blinding light, dominates the scene. Not only is 801 Grand High Rise Building the tallest skyscraper in Des Moines, it’s the tallest in the state of Iowa. While it’s difficult to see on this live feed streamed by the City of Des Moines, the skyscraper is topped by an eight-sided, copper-clad pyramid. That’s an unusual feature and one that means it definitely deserves its grand name, but the question is, who gets to go to the top to polish it?
