The original is better indeed but this isn't bad either! Better than an empty hole at least!

No, serious, I like this design. It looks nice futuristic among the other more classy towers of the Tallest Block.

Yes, perhaps the amount mentioned would indicate a much smaller / more basic building?

In comparison:

1) Arabtec Construction LLC receives a letter of award from DAMAC Ocean Heights I for AED645 million

So the old, already reduced design is gone... the one that would've adapted the Ocean Heights style with greater height.

The new render, seen from this side, reminds me more of a spireless Almas Tower... or a giant carpet cutter . Might look different from the other side, especially at the middle floors.

Do the current figures stand for the new design? 426m with 100 floors would be fine... even if it'd be only around 400m, Damac Heights will dwarf neighbours like Infinity Tower, Emirates Crown and The Torch some day.

I think this is the original (2007?) render seen from another angle.

no, the new design has way shorter finns... and less floors indeed... it's a shame if the old design won't get built.

IMO this design is classier than most others in the Tallest Block (though not necessarily better)

No way that design has only 40 floors. It may be shorter then the previous design, from which it evolved, but it's still certanly a supertall.

On Aedas web site:

http://www.aedas.com/MiddleEast/DAMACHeights

It says "420 meters and 85 floors".

So where did the 100 fl come from?

Totally agree. The original was awesome, but nonetheless this is still a very good design indeed and should fill that space very nicely.
