To help commemorate the 12th anniversary of 9/11, webcam company EarthCam has released a time-lapse that captures nine years of construction at the World Trade Center site, from October 2004 to this September.

The video speeds through almost of decade of work at the entire site, with a special focus on One World Trade Center.
