Possibly but would depend upon how it is drafted. A bigger issue though is that American Tower likely can't agree to that language due to financing commitments they have- the tower may be a security to their own loans/commitments.
We generally advise against payments over time- and instead, recommend just negotiating the best deal you can on a single lump sum payment unless there are reasons from a tax standpoint to do payments over multiple periods.
I will suggest that American Tower is very very unlikely to go bankrupt.
