What's the purpose of using sea level as a measuring point?
It gives an idea of what looks taller when viewed from a distance, such as the Old Toll Gate, North South Motorway or any other elevated view of the CBD skyline. Also there's bragging rights for whichever building ends up highest (which could be different to tallest).

If you don't use sea level, what else would you use as your 0 point?

On days where it’s sunny it looks quite sleek.

On the Eastern side theres a facade panel that is highly reflective... Just under the floor jump system. Makes me wonder if the facade currently has a protective coating?

Can we see said panel in CMB01’s photos on page 74?

Nup, wrong side. It stands out like crazy. I was sitting at the lights on North terrace/Frome intersection heading west, as I was in the car I didn't take a pic.

EBG's photo in the crane thread gives a better view of Pikey's panel:

Because it's one of the screening/opaque panels, I'd say it's more likely a backing film yet to be removed rather than Pikey's theory of a removed one revealing reflective glazing. There's no evidence of film on any of the other installed panels from what I've seen either.

The crane is now visible from about Sefton Plaza driving shouts on Main North Road. The light stands out well around sunset.

Same also on the Superway. The tip of the crane is higher than Westpac.
