Perhaps that room at the very top could be rehabbed and kitted out with a small suburban house… or some version of this thing… making it worth the climb.

Oh, I know I’d move in. I love the idea that shattered concrete and rebar can look like the trunk of a palm-tree. It’s like an upside-down Gilligan’s Island efficiency-studio.
I’d imagine that this is probably an elevator shaft, or stairwell, as I’ve often seen those be the last remaining parts of a demolition like this.
If it’s a stairwell, then you’ve already got the perfect way up to your penthouse room!
Looks like a Lebbeus Woods building.
