So as it stands now the sections on the rear and west walls that won't be brick were the sections that originally had little in the way of detail. Where you see the new cornice ending is where it did originally when built. The new glass section will be the only addition. Currently that is just an indent in the back of the building where they will be installing new floors.

If you go to this link you will see what I mean.

"The south wall, and most of the west wall, are covered by more common unglazed white brick and mortar, with portions where the building used to back against a parking garage clad in a cementitious material. It has been found that these portions are in a poorer condition, and it is proposed that they be covered by an insulated porcelain tile cladding system with mullion-free punched windows. The more clean-lined walls and windows are meant to defer to the grander ornamentation of the other walls."
