Is there an FAA control center there?

When I lived in Colorado the Denver Center was located in Longmont, Co.  In 
about 1988 or 1989 they built a monster LP that looks like it might be the 
same size as the one in your picture.

It was always pointed east, and suspected it was pointed at Washington, D.C.
