EarthCam, a webcam technology company released a time-lapse of the rebuilding of One World Trade Center on Tuesday, formerly known as the "Freedom Tower" to commemorate the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

The stunning time-lapse video titled "World Trade Center: The Rebirth of Downtown New York City," shows the slow but steady process of rebuilding the WTC since February 2010 until September 2012.

The tower was known as the "Freedom Tower" until 2009 when according to the Associated Press, the Port Authority decided to name it "One World Trade Center."

Earthcam had its cameras focused squarely on the rebuilding of the tower that currenty is the tallest in New York City and will become the tallest in the United States once it is completed.

The video also shows how the tower is looking across the Hudson River to show its place among the rest of the New York City skyline.

One World Trade Center will become the tallest building in the United States standing at 1,776 feet with 104 floors. It's height represents the year of the country's independence.

The tower will have an observation deck at the height of former WTC tower 2 and a glass enclosure located at the height of former WTC tower 1.

One WTC is expected to open to the public in 2014.
