    At 47 stories, the In Tempo skyscraper in Spain is set to be the tallest residential building in the European Union.

    But anyone living on floors 21 through 47 has a problem: to get any higher than the 20th floor, you have to take the stairs.


    The In Tempo skyscraper in Spain was built without any elevators to the top floors. (Image: YouTube)

    Builders are likely more than a little red-faced after discovering that the 650-foot luxury high-rise under construction in the resort city of Benidorm is missing a crucial element an elevator that goes all the way to the top of the building. Imagine the difficulty you would have trying to move into your apartment on any floor between 21 and 47.

    The In Tempo was originally designed as a pair of 20-story residential towers, but was later upgraded to add the extra 27 floors. The project was supposed to be completed and opened by 2009. Behind schedule and in a rush to move the project along, someone (or a lot of someones) neglected to design and allocate space for elevators and the machinery needed to operate them. According to Gizmodo, the architects on the project resigned after the embarrassing error was discovered.

    Those who buy condos there should contractually force each of those engineers to have to move them in. Let's see if they make this idiotic mistake again after carrying a six-foot sofa up forty-seven stories for every resident who moves in.
    Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.
