I noticed that parts of the spire are covered in some sort of white radome, it looks much better than when previously 100% exposed.

I wonder if someday they'll cover the whole thing like originally intended?

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!

I know, but someday...? It could be a future project

Yes, someday it could. If I have the means I will personally fork up the $20 million necessary to complete the project. A very small amount in contrast to the significance of what is missing. As far as many are concerned, this project is not completed nor will it ever be as such until the final phase in construction of the spire radome is executed. If and when the final product will finally come into fruition, after then and only then will the true monument and testament that is deserved will finally exist and be a reality.
