The truth is, changes were happening in the building that directly affected the studios upstairs. The most significant one being the declaration that the upstairs was now "Private" and access was by "Invitation Only". This was the owner's response to the order that the building be ADA (American Disabilities Act) compliant. If you make the studios private, you don't need an elevator to meet the requirements.
