The new World Trade Center has just been declared the tallest building in New York City and it's not even complete yet.
This new time-lapse video shows the Freedom Tower (which it's also being called) being constructed since October 2010, floor-by-floor, until it extended more than 1,250 feet into the sky.
Its height now tops that of the Empire State Building, and by the time it's finished (in at least another year) at its projected 1,776-feet height, it could eclipse the Chicago skyscraper (formerly known as the Sears Tower) as the tallest building in the United States.
