Watch America’s tallest hotel built in less than 1 minute

The tallest hotel in North America has just opened in New York’s Times Square (don’t worry, I live here and it was news to me, too). Just how tall is this building? It measures 760 feet tall, or 68-stories. Or, 231 metres for us metric people. The building stands at the corner of 54th Street and Broadway, and boasts everything from a 35th-floor fitness centre and a fourth-floor cafe, to brand spanking new Keurig coffee makers (hey, every little bit counts).

Now, you can imagine how long a building of this caliber took to build, but get ready for some high-speed construction because this video will show you the entire building of the Marriott hotel in less than a minute. Pretty impressive stuff.
