Floor 880 is where people who work for Spotify very quickly move records between record players as people hit "play".

Floor 881 is a perfect replica of the Mornington Crescent tube station in London, including platforms, trains, pigeons and confused Radio hosts.

Floor 882 contains a lot of birdseed, no matter how much is removed. Some of the windows have cracked and it constantly trickles out through the cracks to fall a mile and a half to the ground. Not all of it makes it to the ground, as the birds are getting pretty good at mid-air feeding. Rumours of an occasional live salmon falling out of the window have not yet been substantiated, possibly because the birds are getting pretty good at mid-air feeding.

Floor 883, in contrast, contains very little birdseed, no matter how much is added. Over a dozen helicopter-loads are delivered every day, and nobody can figure out where it's all going. It's a mystery!

Floor 884 contains no birdseeds whatsoever, which has the current resident, Wil. E. Coyote, puzzled, as he orders enormous amounts each day from Acme.

Floor 885 is very fast.

That is, it's very securely connected to the floors above and below.

Floor 886 is very slow.

That is, it's very dull, humdrum, uninteresting, or tedious.

Floor 887 has a straight stairwell that reaches all the way to the ground, and an infinite number of Slinkies.

Floor 893 has ninjas cutting fruit. So if you've ever wondered how fruit in a can is made, they are part of that process.

Floor 897 is an unfolded tessaract, that when the building shakes due to high winds, occasionally collapses and then unfolds in a new configuration.

Floor 898 is a perfect square. It doesn't contain anything of interest, probably due to its lack of voluminousness.
