That's the condominium building on 290 Mulberry Street in Manhattan, New York, designed by SHoP Architects. The rippled brick facade and the way light shines on it results in a different look for the building during different times of the day.

I work on Broadway at Houston St, just a couple of blocks away and saw this building go up over the last year. I can confirm that those are prefab veneer panels that were hoisted up. They were about 8 by 8 feet roughly.

Usually on high rise buildings that have a brick veneer. The brick work is done before hand. Set in panels that are later put in place. Otherwise it would be too time consuming a process to laid the idividual bricks on site and the danger of loose fallingg bricks too much of a liability.
