Construction at One World Trade Center today, will officially make it New York Cites tallest skyscraper. Workers are set to erect skeletal beams that will make it over 1,250 feet tall, just surpassing the Empire State Building.

You can also keep up with the One World Trade Center contruction at NYC-Tower.com.

Construction is scheduled to end about a year from now. When it is all said and done, the building will be the tallest in America and the 3rd tallest worldwide.

...Technically. The building will come with a 408 foot needle protruding from the top. Take away the needle and the Willis Tower in Chicago is America's tallest building.

The debate on whether or not to include the antennae will certainly confound record keepers and keep the debate going for years to come. But what is important, historically, is that The World Trade Center has reclaimed New York's skyline over a decade after the 9/11 tragedy.

To celebrate this milestone, here are some stunning photos of the current progress of One World Trade Center. You can stay updated on the progress and see more photos at @WTCProgress on Twitter.
