That would be a great project and really make this building look nicer.
The parts that you mentioned are in actuality the Upper and Lower UHF transmitting antennas. The panels are white and not radomes.

The original plan for the structure was a spiral radome, covering the entire antenna mast. The building suffered from major cost overruns and the use of a radome was scrubbed due to its $20 Million price tag!
