That's the Frost Bank Tower in Austin, Texas. The one you were thinking of.

Piling is completed, they have just to excavate to reach the pile caps.

How come that we can't see anything? Usually, the very top of the piles are visible, aren't they?

Not necessarily. It depend what pile-inserting technique is used. You can either excavate first and insert the piles or insert them deep and then excavate.

However I am retracting my earlier statement since I have not seen them myself inserting piles, so maybe it can be that they have yet to start. We have to check the earlier posted pics for clues.

The site is adjacent to that of Sulafa tower; only a very thin wall separates them so they can't dig in here untill the neighbour starts rising.
