Denver International Airport’s new hotel was more than 20 years in the making and under construction for three years.
But you can watch time fly by in a time-lapse video that follows the progress of construction on the 519-room Westin hotel from 2012 to the opening, just before Thanksgiving two weeks ago.
EarthCam, a New Jersey company, shot pictures of the hotel’s construction and put them together in a time-lapse video.
Founded in 1996, EarthCam provides live streaming video, time-lapse construction cameras and photography documentation for corporate and government clients in major cities around the world
The company says it documented $151 billion worth of construction projects in 2014.

The Westin DIA is expected to cost between $550 million and $590 million by the time that work is finished in April on the train station that will occupy the hotel’s ground floor.

The Westin chain is a brand of Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide Inc. (NYSE: HOT).
