Antenna rentals in San Franciso

by Craig
(San Francisco, CA)

Verizon Wireless contacted me and is seeking to lease space at my property in San Francisco. The site is located on mixed use building. I was offered $1,200 a month. Is that a good rate? I heard some stories from owners that a site can make over $10,000 a month per each lease... is that true?

Cell Site Concealments
by: Peabody Concealment

Leasing your rooftops to cellular companies is a great way to make additional revenue.

If you do choose to lease your space you may want to consider a RFTC Concealment. Concealments not only help get approval from city officials and siting regulations for the construction process but also hide the antennas from the public's eye.

Having cellular antennas on the top of your building can add a visual pollution that may detract customers. Peabody RFTC Concealments match the existing facade of your building and completely hide the antennas.

Our products are made of RF friendly materials that have little to no absorption loss in signal quality. Our concealments are approved by all major cellular companies.

For more information please see the "Concealed Sites" link on the left about 1/2 down the page, or reach out to

Thanks and good luck in your process!

Verizon Wireless Lease Rates in SF
by: Tower Genius

Craig we are very familiar with Verizon Wireless cell site leasing rates all over the SF Bay Area, and $1,200 per month frankly really stinks, regardless of where you are located. All rental prices are determined by exactly what is being covered, the need (AKA = Demand) and the availability of alternate locations or sites (AKA = Supply). The basic laws of Supply and Demand are at work. If they are only offering you $1,200 per month then chances are that Verizon is also talking to a few neighboring property owners and trying to see where they can get the best deal for themselves. There is nothing wrong with that, but you don't want to sell yourself short. And trust us the nice folks at Verizon Wireless in San Francisco aren't going to tell you what fair market value is.
