So now things get clearer! The stone cladding is more and more unveiled: the building will be striped in ochre and sandy... at least no flashy colors that could give Sulafa Tower an uneasy look.

The crown is mostly done - this assembling reminds me of Mag 218 last year. In both towers, the crown part is narrower than expected (compared with this render).

But there's a big difference, which is also a small one, because I had to look twice in the 2nd photo to notice: the spire is already there!

If the spire doesn't get further extended, Sulafa Tower is topped out now!

I always thought the top will look like this render on the project board.

The spire is placed on top. Is it officially topped out?

Cool. It should be moved to topped-out.
Is the crown done then? If it is, it doesn't look anything like either of the renders I have seen.

Yes, looks different with these vertical "sticks", creating a transparent top. The Sulafa Tower facade shows this vertical structure, too, so I don't think that the roof will change very much from now. So far I prefer the fins of Mag218.

What I don't understand: on the Palm Jumeira pics from May 6, the last crane is gone... but on May 7, the crane is back !?

Its a optical illusion. The crane on May 7 is for Ocean heights.

Instead of brilliant details, here long distance shots that eliminate most of the pespective distortion.
Thus the true heights should be shown here better than normally.
And Sulafa Tower looks tall - compared with Ocean Height, for instance, the tip of the spire could be 300m...
I think that 285m is underrated, although the TAV-Website still has Sulafa Tower at that height.
Maybe they don't count the spire in their calculation - what's your opinion?

And to compare... snapshot from 234sale's recent gigapan marina from businessbay, taken from about 150m height, I guess...

IMO I think you are right! When you look at that picture, it looks taller then Emirates Crown which I think is 296m to the spire, so this should be about 300-301m to the very tip of the spire, which means that Dubai earns what I think is its 23rd supertal u/c or built. Wow nice, and it fits the tallest block well.

Emirates Crown is not so helpful for measuring - that one is definatelly smaller, and the 296m must belong to a version with taller roof and spire. Should be around 280-285m (we've discussed that here previously). But Sulafa Tower is clearly taller - even without spire, that can slighly be seen on the first photo.

But nice to receive an affirmation

Really? I didn't know that Emirate Crown was that short. None the less, I think the difference between the two is enough to insure that this is supertall, to the tip of the spire.
