On Monday, TheBlaze brought you a status update on the World Trade Center terror attack site. And, this morning, we presented some incredible memorial pictures of the beams of light that are being used to remember the lives that were lost 11 years ago.
Also in an effort to commemorate the anniversary of the tragedy, EarthCam, a live web cam company, released a fascinating time-lapse video that depicts the rise of One World Trade Center (also known as the Freedom Tower).
The clip, which lasts just one minute and 22 seconds, shows the building's construction from start to near-finish. The video footage used to create the time-lapse was captured on multiple cameras between February 2010 and September 2012.
In the end, the clip showcases a transformed New York City skyline -- the likes of one that hasn't been seen since before the horrific attacks on September 11, 2001.
Previously, in April, TheBlaze shared an incomplete version of this video, also captured by EarthCam. This special, anniversary version, though, provides a more in-depth view that highlights how profoundly the new building is impacting the city's skyline.
One World Trade Center will inevitably reach a symbolic 1,776 feet and is scheduled to open for business and tenants in 2014.
