Is this Candlestick Park in Past Tense, Part I?

It would be easier to read on a DS9 Blu-ray (hint, hint CBS), but I think this is supposed to be Candlestick Park, in "Past Tense, Part I". I typed "San Francisco 1325" into Google Maps and the area near Candlestick came up! Cool of the DS9 design team to put that in! I doubted myself as there is nothing on Memory Alpha about it.

Look between Bashir and Calvera:

You do realize that building is probably in Los Angeles, right?

It's on the Paramount lot. Look.

Edit:

Here's a snap found in Google Maps with an angle similar to the one in the OP's screenshot, and a scene later in the episode, you also see Dax with that same building in the background:

More specifically, it's the "Financial District" section of the Paramount backlot.
