Depends mostly on how you want your timelapse.
If you want it stylised and surreal, get a wide angle lens (I love the tokina 11-16 f/2.8) or even a fisheye lens to get some really wierd effects.

30mm is best when you want to have a nice clean image (no barrel distortion that is), and anything above that works fine aswell.

Zoom lenses are great for when you want to shoot something at a distance, but that is obvious.

What about 24mm f1.4 for the night timelapse?
