Jeff-
I don't think there's really any way around this but testing it on a couple to a few nights with and without the moon. There's no easy way to guesstimate the lighting ratios between the office building lights and the moon.

If it were me I'd consider doing the shot as a still so it would be far simpler to control the lighting by having different exposure lengths. You would then also have the choice of easily adding the moon of your choice. Also use a long shutter time so the fountain turns to a smooth silk-like flow rather than a frozen moment.

Then do an AfterEffects push or move on the still to help it pass as more than a still. Adding the sound of the fountain would also help in selling the illusion.

OR- you could come up with a simpler B-roll shot.
