Quick and dirty physics says we'll have around 45 minutes to evacuate the area.

Also from the Q&D physics: It will have a mass about 20,000* times the size of the meteor that caused Meteor Crater and be coming down at about the same speed.

*Assuming the flying building is a bit lighter than the Empire State and that the asteroid is orbiting at 10% above standard geosynchronous orbits.
