Looks very green. Why is there a strip of aluminum going up one side, is that decoration?

I should think so. The strip which you mentioned can be seen in this pic posted by babystan earlier in this thread.

From the diagrams, I have a feeling that the building will look as tall as Republic from that angle.

Here is the map


as you can see, ORQ is perfectly aligned with 6 Battery Road, taking into account perspective and viewpoint.

thus, this is how they compare in the skyline pic


I made an accurate scaled diagram of the two


Thus, redstone is actually correct! the tower is now 200m, while the core is 205m. AMAZING!

40m to go! Wohooooo!!!!!!!!!!!
