Forty-five flights of stairs is a bit much.


Maybe they can attach them to the outside?

Are you sure the US government didn't have any say in the planning of this building? After all, according to the general population here their elevators don't go to the top floor as well.

I would guess that the hole in the middle will be filled up with elevators in short order.

Actually Mayor Bloomberg re3cently suggested reduction of elevators on all new Buildings to encourage people to use the stairs, for their health. Perhaps he was on the architecht's advisory board!

Actually it turns out that the first half of the building does have elevators. Construction was halted when the project ran out of money. Another company took over and used outside construction elevators for the upper half. They forgot to install the interior ones. I'm guessing that the space is allotted and it is just a matter of installing them.
