A 47 Story Skyscraper Without an Elevator?

Forty-seven flights of stairs? Who wants to live in the penthouse?!
In Benidorm, Spain, a  47 story skyscraper is being constructed without a working elevator. The Intempo skyscraper, a supposed symbol of hope and prosperity, was originally conceived as a 20 story building. When developers decided  to double the building's height no one considered redesigning the elevator to accommodate the additional 27 floors. Now they are stuck with a 47 story building with not enough space for the elevator lifts and motor equipment. A plan to remedy this massive problem has not be developed yet.
