|Monday Properties' Aaron Twersky and Kastle Systems' Robert DiProspero. Aaron reports that Monday's 386 Park Avenue South has seen a lot of activity on the renewal side, and it's about to embark on lobby and common corridor renovations. Kastle just released a new video monitoring service, which Robert says will save money and increase security efficiency. We guess moats and drawbridges are no longer in vogue.|
