Facts

  • The tower has been a prominent fixture in the South San Jose suburbs since the 1970s; with a peak structural height of 539 feet above sea level, the tower can be seen for miles around.
  • The tower sits on the top of a hill in South San Jose at 425 feet above sea level.
  • After over 30 years of occupying the hill alone, the tower has now been joined by a housing development, consisting of hundreds of condominiums, townhouses, and detached homes; the development, called "Communications Hill," has been established along the hillside below the tower.
  • For the benefit of local residents, the tower was designed to be more pleasing to look at than a standard metal structure would be.
  • This tower is owned by AT&T and used as a major microwave relay for telephone communications in the area.
