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.

It also contains the Lowermost University's bathymetry faculty, who have partnered with r/Cirkeltrek in order to drain the oceans and expose the seabed for measurement.

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 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 1108 is convinced that it is the top floor. You can even climb up onto the roof and see only sky above. However, a secret passageway hidden behind a painting leads to floor 1109.

Floor 1116 contains a helicopter landing pad.

To be clear, it's a perfectly normal interior building floor. It has walls. (And windows, but they don't open.) It also has a ceiling, 8 feet above the floor. (A typical helicopter stands 10 to 20 feet tall.) There just happens to be a helicopter landing pad here.

Floor 1117 has a partially disassembled Sikorsky HH-60 Pave Hawk with a group of technicians trying to figure out how to get it to the floor below. The lead technician has proposed "just shooting the floor til it goes away." while others are showing him the video from Mythbusters about why that won't work.
