From an empty lot, the new $1.2 billion home of the San Francisco 49ers took shape over 29 long months—an odyssey now neatly condensed into two minutes.

A new time-lapse video shows the rise of Levi’s Stadium, which opened last month in Santa Clara, CA. Comprising 1.85 million square feet and seating 68,500 fans, the stadium is California's first new NFL venue in more than 50 years.

A time-lapse video captures the 49ers' new Levi's Stadium from groundbreaking to season opener.

More than 200,000 HD images and 1,350 panorama photographs taken over the course of the construction project were used to create the dizzying two-minute video, according to EarthCam, the New Jersey-based company that produced it.

Accompanied by dramatic music, the video covers a lot of ground, from the hoisting of steel beams to happy fans pouring in to their seats. It does not, however, mention the deaths of two construction workers during the project.

The new 49ers’ facility was designed by HNTB Architecture and built by Turner/Devcon.
