17. It just doesn;t have *enough* elevators

Here's the actual story. A 20 story building needs, say, 5 elevators (to pick a number). A 40 story building needs, say, 12 elevators because there are more people in it and the elevator trips are longer.

So simply adding 20 stories to a design for a 20 story building means you end up with a 40 story building with only 5 elevators.

And that is not enough for the traffic.

But the claim that there are no elevators, or even no elevators to the top, is just a lie. Not from you, but from the author of the article. I am not blaming you here.

"Not enough" elevators does not mean "no elevators" and never will mean that.
