A crane lifted the last of a 408-foot tall spire on top of One World Trade Center on Friday, capping off a 12-year project to replace the twin towers that were destroyed by terrorists on Sept. 11, 2001.

The 18-piece silver spire will top out the tower at a symbolic 1,776 feet, a nod to the year America signed the Declaration of Independence. The new building is just north of the original towers, now the hallowed ground known as Ground Zero.
