Cell Tower LeasingNov 22, 2018

Hi,
I'm a board member in Brooklyn NY. We are a six story building. We are trying to increase our revenue stream. Some ideas are renting more storage units and cell tower leasing. I'm wondering about the current state of cell tower leasing given the changing technology. Any input on the upside/downside of this, numbers for potential income, as well as whether it's best to deal with phone companies directly or go through a third party would be greatly appreciated.
Happy Thanksgiving to all :)

regarding cell phone towers on rooftops - margharita Dec 27, 2018

I live on the top floor of a rental now where there are numerous cell phone towers. I didn't realize them going up at first but after a few months had difficulty in sleeping, nausea, muscle aches that I couldn't explain. I understood since then that these were due to the cell phone towers being directly above me on our paper thin pre war roof. They also have a low frequency hum that is audible. I am looking to move out asap now and I would suggest you discuss with your neighbors who live on the top floors and who these towers might affect.

Cell Towers/Solar Panels - peoples choice #1 Dec 28, 2018

This is a great idea, your building will generate lots of money with great savings to you as a share holder and do a lot of upgrades around your building. Without having an assessment.

With Solar Panels you do need to strengthen your roof while your doing that have them put a barrier underneath your roof and panels. This will prevent any people complaining they hear weird noise coming from beyond. Best of Luck and let us know what you decide to do and how much your going to save in the long run. Happy New Year
