It depends
by: Tower Genius

It depends on the site, the zoning, the carrier, the attorney's, the neighborhood response the construction manager and a plethora of other things. Take whatever timeframe the site acquisition representative told you and add 3 to 6 months to the back end of it just to be safe. Typically from initial site identification to the first cell tower rent check is 1.5 to 2 years. Double that in San Francisco or anywhere you have morons running things.
