Following the reveal of new renderings for the Fumihiko Maki-designed office building coming to 51 Astor Place, we asked you, members of the Curbediverse, for your alternative versions of the building. The prize: a $100 gift card to St. Mark's Bookshop. The winner is?drumroll please?Dustin Tobias, who submitted the above entry.

We were delighted by the many other submissions that poured into the Curbed inbox over the weekend. Here are a few of the runners-up:
