Cell Site Capital LLC sets itself apart in two key ways, communication and diverse specialty knowledge.
Communication, we have learned, is a skill that is never perfected, can always be improved and is pivotal in being able to find alignments of interest among arms-length or adverse parties. Simply, it affords us the ability to start and conclude projects effectively. We pride ourselves in being available for our clients, understanding the real issues that must be solved to deliver the project, as well as understanding our clients’ issues and resolving them in a timely and efficient manner. When Cell Site Capital was formed, a main goal was to put together a specialized group of vendors that had a detailed understanding of communications, real estate, infrastructure development, construction, legal and finance. Collectively we have more than 75 years of industry knowledge stemming from strong partnerships with such companies as AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile to name a few.
We pride ourselves on staying focused on emerging technologies, industry standards and how we can better our practices. Our successes are predicated with our “boots on the ground, all-in mentality” that has enabled us to be successful with all our clients.
We specialize in providing solutions to our clients, not technology. Our unique approach of implementing applications and solutions using technology can greatly enhance your organization’s operations. We are experts at learning and analyzing the operations of any enterprise and then implementing solutions that will enhance the business. Cell Site Capital always begins every engagement with a needs analysis to determine what the client needs to improve their organization.
Management and Marketing of Wireless Assets
We manage our clients existing wireless assets while marketing locations for their future wireless development. As the wireless asset management market continues to grow, it creates a necessity for a management system and the use of real-time applications that will enable our clients to maintain and expanded their wireless assets. Our approach to wireless asset management minimizes security and fraud risks while effectively managing capacity and availability across all platforms. We assist our clients in gradually adopting new solutions to improve their asset utilization levels. Partnering with us allows our clients to utilize our solutions for monitoring and managing wireless technology assets. Asset management is crucial for every organization allowing for improved efficiencies and the flexibility to implement new solutions, improving their current and future asset utilization levels.
Development of Wireless Assets and Sites
Our development objective is to determine the aesthetics of each site and ensure that it synchronizes with the environment in which it is placed. When developing new sites, a strong partnership is formed between us and our clients, ensuring all their needs are met and fulfilled. This is inclusive of, but not limited to, the initial identification of appropriate locations (i.e. municipal properties, department of public works yards, waste yards, existing buildings, excess land, water tanks, maintenance facilities) whether privately owned, government-owned or government controlled. Once the agreed upon location is finalized, we then proceed to negotiate agreements on behalf of our clients. Our exclusive and individualized development strategies ensure that there is no infringement on our clients’ development rights while affording them a monetary growth opportunity. We provide the ability to construct new tower sites and, together with our wireless carrier partnerships, increase the coverage and capacity of both public and privately held networks.
Partnering with Municipal And Governmental Entities
We help connected communities to build awareness for the need for wireless infrastructure, helping write zoning code that satisfies the voice and data needs of the community with as little visual impact as possible. We are willing to invest alongside of our local government partners to grow and manage the wireless growth in their communities. Most importantly,we help to address the digital divide by working with carriers to promote equal access to wireless broadband throughout a community to ensure digital equality. We have a team of experienced site acquisition specialists with local jurisdictional knowledge in every market that we serve.
Our real estate team can handle the most complex land use issues that arise during site development. We routinely handle all aspects of tower development including leases and lease amendments, easements, land use approvals, variances, FAA and FCC filings, and coordination of NEPA screening reports, EAs and Phase I environmental screenings. You can rely upon our program management expertise for new site builds, overlays/modifications, backhaul, infrastructure development, small cells, DAS, site hardening and more. We bring a long tenure and a wealth of diverse project experience. Strong local and regional support from our field resources add to our ability to provide the best solutions to our clients’ needs.
CURRENT LEASE Consultation
Have you been approached for a new tower or asked to sign an amendment to your current contract? You need to call us. Most of the time you are asked to sign one of these amendments, it is for the betterment of the carrier or the tower company. Usually it is to extend the terms that are already in place and to secure their long-term interest not yours. They may want to add additional language that will make it more difficult to sell your property or wireless asset when you choose.
“Lease Optimization” is another way to say “Rent Reduction”. Most carriers contract these types of services to other firms to help them reduce their cost. Their goal is simple; lower the operating cost and ultimately to pay less rent for the location.
The carriers have used companies like Black Dot Wireless and Md7 to lower your rent and reduce your terms. Usually they will tell land owners that the wireless carrier has another cell site location in the area and they may decommission the site unless you lower the rent. In most cases they will offer a “rent guarantee period” in order to get you to sign. Before you agree to any changes to your site you should give us a call.
New Lease Negotiations
Recently, the demands for new cell site locations have been very high. 4G LTE sites that are very data demanding are driving new site builds. Knowing how your new site might factor into the current cell network is critical. Understanding what rents should be for your specific site will help you to better understand the real value of your location.
Cellular Tower Lease Acquisition
We acquire all wireless cell sites and leases. We convert your small monthly or yearly check into a large lump sum of money through the use of a specific wireless easement or straight purchase of the rent stream contract. In some cases we purchase the parcel if that best suits your needs. We offer flexible terms lengths; lump sum payouts or pay over time; and real revenue sharing on additional tenants.
Most cell phone tower location owners choose to sell the specific wireless easement due to the lower tax rate on the lump sum via Capital Gains. This will not negatively affect the value of the property due to the easement being “wireless specific”. You will still have the rights to the sell or refinance the property as needed.
If you are looking to sell your cell tower lease, please do not hesitate to contact us for the largest settlement possible.
These areas are our core business. Maximizing your long-term value and structuring a transaction that meets your goals really matters for us. The best decisions are educated decisions and we do everything we can to make sure you understand our process and are completely satisfied with your decision to work with Cell Site Capital.
