The proposed project would involve replacement of existing telecommunication equipment by T-Mobile (Applicant) within the Marina Cortez (Tenant) leasehold in the City of San Diego, California. Work to specifically complete the proposed project would involve removal of six (6) existing panel antennas and fifteen (15) remote radio units (RRUs), installation of nine (9) new panel antennas and nine new RRUs, and replacement of two (2) equipment cabinets inside the existing equipment room. All work would be conducted on the roof of the Marina Cortez building. Construction of the proposed project is anticipated to occur in Summer 2021 and would take approximately one (1) month to complete. Approximately four (4) parking spaces would be temporarily used by worker trucks during the construction period and two (2) cranes would be used over two days. Construction and temporary parking would mostly be conducted outside the Tenant’s operating hours.
Due to its nature and limited scope, construction of the proposed project would generate a minor amount of vehicle trips and would require limited use of equipment. Therefore, significant impacts related to air quality, greenhouse gas emissions, and transportation and traffic are not anticipated to occur. Furthermore, the Applicant would be responsible for complying with all applicable federal, state, and local laws regarding construction demolition debris, hazards and hazardous materials, and stormwater.
