All FAA equipment was removed at that time and it was remodeled into offices for the Dept. of Airports. The cab on top has been used by Airport Ops as the "Snow Desk" during snow removal since then. This tower has been used as a back up ATC tower a couple of times over the years but the controllers bring their own portable equipment with them.
The second tower on top of Terminal 2 is the Delta ramp tower. It was built as a dedicated ramp control/operations tower for Delta. Most all equipment in it belongs to Delta. Unknown what Delta's plan for their equipment is when the new terminal opens.
