yes, the Mapocho River (Rio Mapocho), which runs through Santiago. It's a fast-moving river coming off the Andes, which is why it's brown, like many mountain rivers (that, plus it's polluted, though not like it once was). There are plans in the works to make it "navigable". They're going to clean it up (water filtration system) and put in a series of locks to dam the river every couple of KMs so that you can swim or boat in it, but the project is still on the drawing board and hasn't been officially approved.

You'll notice a green park on the far side in the picture. Right underneath that is the Costanera Norte (north shore) Highway, which runs beneath the river for several KMs. On the land reclaimed from the freeway, the government has built a series of parks along the river.

The Costanera Center is being built immediately to the right of these buildings. Here you can see where the underground highway begins.


Here is where it re-emerges (lower-middle).


Another pic of the Costanera Norte highway and Mapocho River.

Gracias. And the riverbank is very nicely landscaped, with the highway rather discreetly worked in.

I forgot to mention in my original update from last week that most of what you're seeing in the picture (the cement layers in the center) is the underground parking garage, which will be beneath the mall if I'm not mistaken. The foundations for the 300m Gran Costanera tower is the half-circle in the lower-right edge of the picture, by the way.
