It seems that in the age of raised security, elevators now restrict the movements of its passengers. I was at a condo building in the Harbourfront the other day and the elevator required a RF key to get to the desired floor. In fact, residents can only access the floor they live on. Guests must be buzzed in and the elevator will only take you to the floor that corresponded with the phone number of the resident. It’s a bit crazy, since you can't even visit friends from other floors. Mind you, one could easily walk down a flight of stairs too. A concierge down in the lobby doesn't seem like such a bad idea after all, when given the options.
