Shafted- More on Railtown -updated

We are told the fourth opening is likely for the roof, as all the
equipment will be up there. Still the shaft is shockingly high!

You have seen the Crowell Tower  elevator
shaft/stack which has gone up at Railtown. Doesn’t it seem a little
high for a three story building? Ah, but did you look and count the
number of openings in the stack on the west side? Four. Yep, four. That
means four stories and as you see the second floor going up it is quite
clear it will be four stories high. Look at the photo below. Three
stories – but you have to notice the caveat.
