There must be a kind of fertilizer in the ground around Marina101 / Sulafa; both towers grow very well .

At the latter, I count lv 59 for floorplates and about lv 62 for some side walls now. The oversized technical floor at lv 55 is clearly visable. So overall, Sulafa Tower should be 8th tallest in the superblock now and might be 6th tallest in a few weeks by overtaking Mag 218 and Marina Pinnacle, I think.

that fertilizer is called fear of prison/death if you don't work your hardest.

A tale of two towers:
Marina Pinnacle, still a couple short of its final height of 66 floors, first appeared above ground around August 2006;
Sulafa Tower, to rise 75 floors, popped up above the sand around February 2008

Marina Pinnacle, despite having a construction lead of eighteen months, will likely be overtaken by Sulafa Tower, as Dan says, in a few weeks.

Sulafa Tower to the right, giving a good counterpart to Ocean Heights:

Sulafa Tower nicely framed by Marina 101 and Ocean Heights... some of the fastest gathered together:

...and once again 1 more floor in 7 days... Sulafa Tower appears at least 250m tall to me.

Despite starting construction 18 months after Marina Pinnacle, Sulafa is now taller.
Needless to add that MP, UC since August 06, still hasn't topped out. The shame!

Side walls one floor taller than last week, no new floor on slab. Cladding seems to start on upper part of Sulafa Tower:
