Although it is still UC and the scaffolding still hasn't been removed completely, it shoots out a green laser from the top at night during the Symphony of Lights.

I'm not surprised if the windows can open. It's a serviced apartment. People live there for long periods of time. I can't imagine living in an apartment with windows that cannot open. I can't possibly turn on the A/C 24/7 365 days a year.

Speaking of which, it was a great shame losing the balconies from the Oriental. I suspect the decision had a lot to do with the suicide of the singer (forgot his name) from the balcony?

Yes, Leslie Cheung committed suicide at the Oriental on April 1, 2003.
