The cloudy day hasn't helped the lack of contrast, and it looks like the camera on your phone isn't that sharp - some bits look unsharp and other bits look oversharpened.
I don't think this is a great angle, and the blank sky adds nothing either.

I think here you might have been better to concentrate on specific bits of dilapidation, excluding the sky altogether. Look at details that show the building is old - broken windows, graffiti, open doors etc.
The phone isn't really up to capturing high contrast scenes and high levels of detail, as they are optimised for taking pictures a few metres from the camera. Anything further than that and they struggle.

I would suggest staying away from subjects that involve large depth (like landscapes), unless it's a last resort or the scene is unmissable, as anything more than a few metres away will not be very sharp. Even a cheap compact camera will be more use than a camera phone if you intend to keep shooting this kind of thing.
