Thanks again to Stephan23 for updating the thread on this almost-ignored skyscraper.

Largely overlooked along with Marina Pinnacle due to the more glamorous and interesting supertalls around it and because of its unappealing and drab beige colouring, it appears that Sulafa Tower may end up being something of a surprise packet. I agree with Dan Hochhaus that the blue cladding and vertical emphasis will make the building much sharper than the stodgy rendering would suggest.

The over nine hundred footer-made good! Who would have thought?

Let's update this thread, using pics from the Dubai subforum...

Seven new floors in 6 weeks... so good progress on Sulafa Tower.
They're working on floors of lv42 now; with side walls up to lv44.
Cladding is also improving quite well.

And here's the construction sign (09/April/2009 by Imre):

[IMG]http://i39.************/2d9tt3m.jpg[/IMG]
On the render, I count 21+28+21=70 apartment floors... +5 base floors=75 total floors (numbering begins with 6).
Thereby, the two doublesize technical levels and 1-3 roof levels are not counted in.
So one could also see Sulafa Tower as a future +80 floors tower.

Sulafa is now at about 43 levels (44 if the mechanical floor is counted as two).
At 285m 935' this building would have been the 30th tallest building in the world just 12-13 years ago (between the Columbia Centre in Seattle and
40 Wall St in NY) but now there are so many supertalls even on this site it's routinely overlooked.

On this Marina panorama, Sulafa Tower (in the background) is among the "winners". The building looks slightly +200m now... playing with the big boys
