Sulafa now with a new double floor - I haven't noticed such on that position on render or sign, so this should soon be divided by another floorplate into lv71 and 72, I think. And side walls go up to lv74 already, so the top floor is in reach now:[IMG]http://i46.************/ser58y.jpg[/IMG]

24/November/2009 by Imre, from Dubai Pearl site.

Again one more level - and Sulafa Tower, although amidst four (soon-to-be-)supertalls, isn't far behind... my guess is 270m:

One step down - from a top floor of The Torch:

Sulafa looks almost as tall as 23 Marina here!

And right from the ground again:

Now there's another double floor on top... I don't get this together with the renders.

only about 5 floors missing now plus the top structure
One of the unknown towers within the tallest block, I guess that happens when everybody around you is at least a hundred meters taller

That much? If so, Sulafa would go over 300m, hands down. In my counting, the first taller floor near the actual top is number 71 - so the tower should have reached the upper floor 75 now... But let's see!

Yes, that's the point. And that's a motivation for me to take a little care about this building.

Great panorama from Palm Jumeira! And Sulafa Tower looks mighty there, too, though it's "only" 5th or 6th tallest so far.
Side walls have gone up a level again.

The side walls look so thin here! They're up one level, and a regular(?) floor above the two "double-floors" is partly done, too. But more noticeable is the growth of the core this week.

I'm still curious if Sulafa Tower will look exactly in the end, and how tall it's going to be... but some neighbours (Torch, Marina Pinnacle) also have a rest of unclarity, because all of them look as they could get more floors than expected. And that's exciting!

I think this will be taller than 285m. I try to compare the height with the sorrounding towers.
Any body agree?!

I'd like to join in, but I'm not totally sure so far.

- On one hand, walls should've reached around 280m, and neither the planned roof nor the tiny spire is visible. If we just add all that, Sulafa would be a supertall in the end.
- On the other hand, ther've been already some smaller changes on the facade structure (e.g. near the technical floors), and this might also be done with the crown. For instance, these double-floors could be the start of a modified roof section, with the existing side walls going up to the top of the roof. Or they might skip the pinnacle.

But soon we'll have an answer!

There's one more oversized level now, and the scaffolding around the wall columns to the left have vanished. So one might expect, that this is part of the roof and t/o is near. But the core has grown again, and for the first time it looks taller than the outer walls.

There's no formwork around core or side walls, so I guess that the concrete part has topped out (I estimate at around 285-290m). Let's see if there'll be a crown above, and if it will look according to the renders.

The one in the picture in the first post of this thread has a tiny little spike on top.
