Obayashi To Build Space Elevator By 2050
Because 36,000km is where geostationary orbit is ... the elevator is tied to the surface of the earth, and so makes one rotation per day. You *could* get off at 360km, but you'd be moving waaay below orbital speed and would fall straight (actually elliptically) back to earth. No chance of docking with the ISS, which makes an orbit approx every 90 minutes IIRC.
