Genius Engineers Forget To Add Elevator To 47-Story Spanish Skyscraper

Genius Engineers Forget To Add Elevator To 47-Story Spanish Skyscraper
World

The 47-story Intempo skyscraper was built in order to signify prosperity and hope in Benidorm, Spain amidst the unpredictable global economic climate, yet the engineers forgot to include a major component of the building: an elevator.

The massive skyscraper may have everything it needs if you’re looking to get some cardio, as the building has all the stairs one could ask for. If you’re not looking to trek up 47 floors everyday, however, this may not be the building for you.

This is just the beginning of the building’s problems, however, as the finances have been taken over by SAREB, Spain’s notoriously “bad bank.”

The building is slated to include 269 homes, but it won’t be a major attraction without some sort of elevator.

So how the hell does such a major detail get left out? The building was initially set to have 20 floors, but this number was bumped up to 47. Naturally, a 47-story building requires more space for an elevator than one that contains 20 floors, something the engineers did not equate for when redesigning it. Ouch.

This may be the one time living on a lower floor is considered a luxury.
