2) Steve's floor is higher than Reggie's, but lower than Gordon's.
3) Gordon has a wonderful view from his office!
4) The person on floor 1 leaves the latest.

#3 and #6 were pointless clues because they were not able to difinitively say anything. Having a great view doesn't have to mean the top floor, it could mean bottom floor and the windows looked out onto a beautiful patio. #6 didn't tell us if above was directly above or maybe just anywhere above, and we already knew Steve had to be on floor 2, which means Frank had to be somewhere above him. It was solveable without useing either of these clues, with or without their intended meanings.

The puzzle could be solved using just clues 5-7.

mocha613 is right, just the clues 5-7 are necessary to solve the grid

Posted by dewtell07/17/15
@bloody-albatros, @harmonize9: clues 5-7 suffice if you interpret #5 as implying that Reggie is on the first floor (the most likely interpretation, granted). And @mocha613 is wrong about #6 - if you flip Steve and Frank's floors, all the other clues still work, so we don't know that Steve is on floor 2 without clue 6.
