Hiding in plain sight

ConcealFab likes to tell potential customers that it hides things in plain sight. As its name suggests, the company conceals things. Things like 4GLTE towers and military communication towers. It’s a 2014 company to watch, among other things, because it is grooming itself now to work with AT&T and Verizon cell service companies on a […]

At its northernmost point, Powers Boulevard is met with a juxtaposition. By now, InterQuest Parkway was supposed to be a vibrant strip of hotels, entertainment venues, restaurants, offices and residences. Instead, semi-finished buildings left vacant for 10 years stand mere feet from new construction. Stymied by a stagnant economy and developer bankruptcy, associated players are […]
