    Rosamond took around 30,000 photographs of the building's rise from the time it emerged on the skyline in 2011 to it's near completion in July this year. The building's construction began in 2006.

    He used 1,100 of these photos to create the two-minute time-lapse video of the 1,776-foot skyscraper, which is now the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere.

    Along with the One World Trade Center, Rosamond's camera also captured the construction of 4 World Trade Center, Brooklyn's tallest tower — 388 Bridge St., and the Barclays Center.
