I wouldn't worry too much, guys. That was just a photo-op for the suites. I remember projects in the past that had their "ground breaking" ceremony and then didn't actually break ground for another month or so.

That is what I hope will happen too. A taller and more slender Frost with a very tall mast/spire supported from inside the four knife edges. A building with fantastic lighting.

Want to ask Doug Jr. to his face why they shortened the Fairmont? He'll be one of the panelists at the upcoming Bisnow "Downtown Austin: Texas's Next Big Thing" conference in December. https://www.bisnow.com/events/austin-san-antonio These Bisnow events usually have between 200 and 400 attendees, so it can be challenging to visit with the speakers individually but they do take questions from the audience.

I walked by today and saw that some dirt has been moved along Red River St. near the creek. I also saw a couple of workers there. This view is from the northwest corner of the lot.
