Watch the 10 minute Youtube video about the tower. They show how they did visibility tests. There you will discover that the white on green at night was solely chosen for visibility purposes, after conducting some tests.

OK. Somebody get us a close-up of the progress on the hilal!

No there will be random sparkling lights at night, they will be lit during Ramadan, Eid Alfitr and Eid Aladha (Islamic holidays) however, it could also be for each time prayer time is announced (athan/azan)

I imagine they will install the other side first, to lessen the strain on the underlying structure. Then they will install the points on either side, one at a time.
