Watch the rise of 56 Leonard in New York City’s Tribeca neighborhood.

Developer Alexico Group relied on EarthCam‘s megapixel construction camera to document progress from March 2014 to December 2016 with HD imagery.

The project is the first skyscraper designed by international architects Herzog & de Meuron.

The London Daily Mail picked up the story with this report:

It took a whopping 33 months to build – and each step was recorded by webcam company EarthCam then compiled into this incredible video.

At first it’s hard to see the base of the tower, which is just an ugly mass of construction netting and concrete blocks.

But slowly and surely it rises from the mass of other buildings and begins to take shape.

The split screen shows the building’s overall construction on one side and the floor-by-floor development on the other.
