Floor 1275 is completely lost and refuses help from people with GPS-devices. It has a map, thank you very much.

Floor 1086 is an engineering firm tasked with creating technical drawings and documentation by reverse engineering the building to show everything meets legal specifications. According to a respectable specialist journal, you need to be a civil engineering demigod to be hired as an unpaid intern.

Floor 1091 contains the tip of the monolith, which happens to look like a small pyramid. A larger, inverted glass pyramid comes from the ceiling. Most people think it is from the floor above, and the sound of traffic diffuses from the windowpanes. There are museum exhibits scattered about.

Floor 1100 is in the shape of Mario. Room 1 consists of speakers hearing him excitedly going "wahoo!" While floor 8 all you can hear is his disappointed groanings.

Floor 1102 has a staircase running directly to the exit on 1098, with a bunch of physics grad students rolling marbles and superballs down the staircase and out the door.

Floor 1103 has a staircase leading directly to the staircase on Floor 1103. A bunch of physicists are trying to figure out how it works by rolling marbles and superballs up/down/along it. They also have slinkys stolen from the grad students on the floor below.

Floor 1104 has a device which teleports unobserved slinkies and superballs from elsewhere in the skyscraper to the top of the stairs leading up from 1103 and they immediately proceed down said stairs provided they are being observed.

Floor 1105 is the device causing the entire universe to be observed and thus collapse into a stable quantum waveform.

Floor 1106 has a bunk bed in every room. But the moment you put any weight on the top bunk it will come crashing down.

Floor 1107 has a 7-Eleven. Nominally open 24/7, but with a note on the door that they're currently closed for stocktaking.
