square footage rate

(portland, oregon, USA)

If your carrier has to build their shelter for genrators, etc. on your space, what's a fair square footage rate. The original lease was $3.67/sf but they had to expand the sf to accommodate the fencing around the shelter. The carrier is now offering a lower sf rate of $1.00+/sf but I think they should stay at the original $3.67/sf.

What is the fair sf rate to rent ground in Portland, Oregon?

Value is not based on square feet occupied.
by: Stephen

Cell tower infrastructure lease values for landlords are not based on the number of square feet occupied by a carrier or tower company, despite what they may tell you. Even if somebody was duped into taking a square foot price on a lease, it is not how values are calculated.

Ask yourself, what if they could not get a generator installed here? would they need to leave the site and relocate, and how much would that cost them?
