      Why an obelisk? Is there a forest of obelisks nearby? :rolleyes:
    • Jonathan Kramer
      Actually, yes, if a forest is one other. At my own site, do a search on the word Spectrum and you'll see the other one in Irvine at the Irvine Spectrum Shopping Center.

      I pass by this one and the one at the Spectrum about once a week. This one at the toll roads is a Cingular installation. Not sure who else is on it but Sprint is not. Sprint already had another site close by on the 241.

      The one at the Spectrum is Verizon I think.

      Hi Larry:

      One of my "when I have time projects" is to go into Irvine City Hall and pull all of the approved sites in the City. In the meantime, thanks for the updates on the two obelisks.


      PS: Any idea why I'm back to being a new member? j :loony: :loony:

      While we're on the subject of the toll road towers have you seen the new towers that went up at the Windy Ridge toll booth in Anaheim Hills along the 241? They appear to be temporary sites and there are about 4 of them. Sprint's was the last to go up. I'm wondering if the sites are eventually going to be combined into one tower or what.

      PS. I have no idea why your back to new member status. JFB will have to answer that one. lol

      LOL, that's a good one...
    • Jonathan Kramer
      I'm not working for Anaheim so I don't have any 'inside' knowledge there...sorry. j
    • Jay2TheRescue
      Personally I think this is no better or worse looking than just having a monopole or regular tower. What do they think they're hiding? I guess the thing I'm getting at is that it doesn't blend in with the surroundings.
    • Jonathan Kramer

      Jay: This is perceived as an architectural feature rather than an antenna support. Even though there's nothing around, the key word missing is, "yet." It's far easier to blend this into future development than a 3 or 4 platform monopole. It's a planning 'thang.'

      jlk, a new member!..again... :browani:
    • Jay2TheRescue
      Yeah, but it looks like it is made of giant Legos. Unless this is an unfinished state, and they are going to add stucco , brick, or fake stone it just looks kinda cheezy and incomplete, but that's just my opinion.
    • Jonathan Kramer
      Jay, blame the photographer, not the builder. There's another photo of this sites in my gallery that provides a different, and perhaps better view of the project, and highlights the fact that this project is in an area currently being developed.

      The site's actually quite nice when seen in person. jlk
    • Jay2TheRescue
      I guess I'll have to wait till they build some of them around here. Its quite a drive for me to go see it.
