I did a duckduckgo search and found this model that doesn't seem to be on their website. It shows what Montirob is talking about. They're currently working on the top non-penthouse floor (4th floor from the top). So yes, there is quite a bit left to go!

I want that model for my house! It's beautiful. I've always loved those detailed highrise models.

Anyway, I posted a pic on Google Maps under the Thompson Hotel. It's a pic from a distance. It really shows how much of a different the building has made on the skyline. You can zoom in on it, too.

From the terrace of my residential building, the Thompson crane has been raised and is even with the Bank of America building! The Thompson Hotel will definitely impact the SA skyline greatly!

On another note, I also see another crane has gone up. From the terrace of my residential building it almost looks like it is in front of the AT&T building on St. Mary's St. What building is this now???

Very Nice, I must say! I have been waiting for the Arts Thompson to finish so I can do some new skyline San Antonio shots.

Looking forward to it, Raul.

Just a suggestion for a location (if they'll let you in the building... or even on the roof):
