With the recent opening of One World Trade Center, the folks over at EarthCam have reshared their 2013 timelapse of the tower’s 1,776 foot rise. There’s not too much else to say about the video, other than that it sure makes the building’s very long and arduous climb seem pretty quick and easy. It’s also set to some very Game of Thrones-y music, so it has that going for it too.

You can check out the video above to see One World Trade, and some other pieces of the World Trade Center site (hello, Four World Trade!), take shape over what has been a very fraught time frame.

And, hey, maybe in another year or so, we’ll be back here watching a timelapse of Calatrava’s Transportation Hub. And after that, how about the rise of (maybe) Bjarke Ingels’ 2 World Trade Center?
