Stunning timelapse video shows One World Trade Center being built from the ground up in 2 minutes

One World Trade Center Timelapse Video

It’s taken quite some time for One World Trade Center to be built from the ground up, although an incredible new video posted by EarthCam makes it seem like it happened in just over two minutes. The video takes 11 years’ worth of still photos from the site of One World Trade Center and shows it being gradually built up from the ruins of the old World Trade Center that was destroyed by the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001.

The video was released to coincide with the opening of the One World Observatory at One World Trade Center this past weekend and it shows footage ranging all the way back from October 2004 to Memorial Day weekend 2015. The construction takes a while to really get going but once it does, it’s amazing to see the massive new tower come together. Check out the whole video below.
