This siren.

Looks like a pump
I FOUND IT! It's called the Essi FaradicWave 6, and it's actually a fog signal that was chosen for the campus because it has a distinct sound from the town's fire siren (which is apparently an XT22).

I have no idea but that looks like a Federal Electric/Sign and Signal logo on top. I definitely don't think it's a vent. You should find out if the store owners would let you get it.

Thanks for letting me know! We asked if it was for sale, and they said, "probably not". But I think it would be easy to take down, and it would be a cool project to work with.

Yeah and it's uncommon too so if I were you (and if you have the money and means of getting it down) I would offer a few hundred for it. They would probably let you have it for that.

Hate to be a killjoy, but I am pretty sure that is a vent.

The loop on top tells me it's a siren, or at least another heavy appliance that would need to be lifted with a crane.

Yeah I thought it probably was at first but it appears to have the Federal logo on top. I suppose it could be something like an old exhaust fan or similar though. A drone could help in a sure identification.

This siren at the VFD in Upper Saddle River, New Jersey. I heard it from a nearby location and it sounded exactly like a Whelen WPS in Wail Tone. https://goo.gl/maps/49NcfEJZmagZ64wc9

Someone probably took the drivers, made horns and a custom box for it when the original siren head got damaged.
