They mentioned meeting at Daystrom (which struck me as being a bit off, timeline wise but I'm sure there are ways to explain it).
Well, even in the Prime timeline Richard Daystrom had revolutionized 23rd century computer technology within the Federation by inventing duotronics, which he did at the young age of 24 in the year 2243.

Even in the Prime timeline Daystrom was an established and known name by the time TOS rolls around given how quickly and easily Kirk and Spock rattle off information about him and know about his more recent computer developments. It's no stretch to think that Abramsverse Dr. Daystrom could have been famous enough by that particular 2259-60 timeframe to have a building complex named after him.
