26. Yes, that shows cthulu2016 is correct

This is not about the elevator not reaching above the 20th floor; the elevators are too small - ie they have the capacity for a 20 floor building, not a 47 floor one. The more floors you have, the more people there are in a building, wanting to use the elevators at a given time, and the longer the average journey in the elevator. And you need more powerful motors for more people, and longer cables (if the cables are 27 floors longer, they have a significant weight of their own).
