which product for 450ft away buildings?

I have 2 buildings that are 450ft away from each other, with direct line of site from their roofdecks. Building A has great internet service and running Unifi AC on each floor. Building B has terrible internet service, and wants to share /use the internet of Building A since they have the same owner anyway and there is an extra port on the switch i can run a Lan cable to the roofdeck. What products would I need to use for each building? a blaster and a receiver of sorts? would a long range access point work, or do i need air Fiber radio, antenna, or airmax? Thank you!

Two Nanobeams (specifically, NBE-5AC-16) would do the trick just fine. Probably a 10 MHz channel will be more than sufficient for three users. Configure one as an Access Point PtP and the other as a Station PtP.

What kind of realistic capacity are you after?

So, from the rooftops of Building A, and B, you have clear line of site to the opposing end, with no obstructions, correct?

Yes, clear line with no obstructions. 

Building B only has 3 internet users that check email and surf the net (small office) so just a very basic thing would suffice.

Yes, I also vote for NanoBeams for this use case.
