I did a quick search, and while I have found articles talking about updating the systems to LEED standards, nothing about changing the look of the building.

Here is the only one I found mentioning the skin.
The building’s current owner, which is no longer Sears, has retained architecture firm Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill (Smith, formerly of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, designed Burj Dubai), who will explore how the building’s lighting, mechanical systems, elevators, and glass skin can be updated to bring the building up to LEED standards.
He was constantly reminded of how startlingly different a place the world was when viewed from a point only three feet to the left.
