It’s been a while since we’ve talked about our most colorful tower to date! A few recent posts just happened to remind us how fun this tower is. Check out the original blog post, below, and visit our Instagram to see the most recent, color scheme.
Sperry Communications Tower is likely one of the most unique projects STEALTH® has had the opportunity to create. Located in Eagan, Minnesota, this new landmark is a three-legged, 179′ radial antenna concealment tower designed and built for use as a communications tower for City, emergency and multiple carriers to store their equipment. All of the concealment levels were created from RF transparent panels assembled into the tower that now stands.
The need for a concealment came when the former Sperry water tower was removed in May of 2016. In an interview with the Eagan Patch, Eagan Communications Director, Tom Garrison said, “This [new tower] really marks Eagan as a destination, with a sense of fun and flair.” And that is does. This unique addition to their city becomes even more captivating as soon as the sun goes down. A total of 185 LED lights (5,400 bulbs) were installed throughout the panels. It can be programmed to run “an infinite number” of color combinations. For sporting events, the Forth of July, Christmas or really any special event, they have a color combination or special effect to coordinate.
