Judging by the recently unveiled model of Liberty Place, Lego fans are in for a treat once the completed Philadelphia display at the upcoming Legoland Discovery Center in Plymouth Meeting Mall is unveiled, writes Dan McQuade for Philadelphia Magazine.

The project is coming along wonderfully thanks to Mike Nieves, a Lego enthusiast who won the themed three-round competition to become its master model builder.

“It was pretty tough,” said Nieves. “We had about a half hour for each round.”

Since winning, Nieves has wasted no time in getting to work building the models. The miniature Liberty Place was created with over 17,000 bricks, and it took over 900 hour to build.

“It’s got such detail, if you look in the windows of the shops. It’s a great addition to our Miniland Philadelphia,” said Legoland Philly GM, Michael Taylor.
