Major changes to the design would be difficult due to the second tower's foundation being already in place. That sets the location, size, and shape of the building footprint. Secondly, the structural design of the complex is somewhat unique: the towers feature a slipformed core surrounded by a structural steel frame that makes up most of the structure. The existing foundation will be built to accommodate that.
Cosmetic changes would be possible, but the fundamentals are likely set unless the developer wishes to pay extra for mods to the foundation/parking garage.
