Yep, looked like concrete until I got close and zoomed. They actually look like grey steel I-beams. "Concrete capped steel pilings".

Whoops, didn’t even see that. The google street view must be old, as I thought the piles looked like concrete.

The vertical members are steel; they’re driven into the ground much the same as sheet piling; they’re simply referred to as driven piles. After they’re all driven, a concrete cap is installed on top for system unification and surface for attachments.

I’ve always heard it called concrete pile piers, so I would assume that would be the correct name, although I’m not absolutely sure.
