It is referring to a time in the future when what he does will be in the past.
You don't know if he has already done it now, and you are just waiting for a time in the future to see what it is, OR
If he is currently working on it, and in the future, you'll see it completed, OR
If he hasn't started yet, and in the future you'll see it completed, OR
Any of these things and it will still be a work in progress then.
Since it says "near future" I would guess that whatever it is, it's already done, and very soon you'll see what.
