Draft-n uses mimo technology, multiple in multiple out antennas designed really to reduce multipathing thus increase throughput and are not really well suited for bridging buildings where you want a point to point or point to multipoint link.

Would you recommend using the 802.11g then instead? what would be the best product and antennas for that?

Without the spectrum being analyzed between the buildings, it would  be a guess to tell you that 802.11g would be the best.  If there are already 2.4ghz networks in the area between the buildings then it may not be a good choice. In this case 5.8ghz radios may be better.

There are alot of things to consider when building a 1.5 mile link.

Here is something to get you started, this is what you use to determine the antenna gain, height of the antenna do to the freznel zone etc.  It is called a link budget....
