How do I rent property for a cell phone tower? And who do I call to do it?

So my friend used to have a warehouse in Florida. Then an act of god happened. Now he's got a flat concrete slab with utility hookups that he's making a mortgage payment on. He's looking for someone to rent his space for something to at least cover his payment and property taxes. To date he's had no takers. It's in an industrial area, close to highways and railways. But he can't find anyone.
I said "you should try and rent it out to a cell phone company for a tower." He said "Great. Who would I call?"
And I had no idea. I googled for about 20 minutes and all I know how to do is apply for FIOS TV service.
So who would you talk to for this sort of thing? is there a middleman? Is there a division of a company that handles it?
Or conversely, if you have a better idea, I'm open to it. And I know he is.
