The tragic events of 9/11 left a void in the New York City skyline, but after 12 years, the building that will take the place of the twin towers , One World Trade Center, is nearing completion.

From October 2004 until September 2013, EarthCam created a commemorative time-lapse that chronicled the rise of the new skyscraper. At 104 stories and a staggering height of 1,776 feet, One World Trade Center is the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere.

EarthCam specializes in webcam content and technology services. To see more time-lapse videos or watch live webcam video of sites from Hawaii to Turkey, visit their website, earthcam.com.
