When Dwayne Johnson's character is climbing up the tower crane - according to the building's height: several hundred meters - and the policemen finally reach its elevator, it is apparent that the latter is in service, although they also had no regular access to the base and had to gain it violently. Thus, since the structure he climbs up, is the same as elevator uses, he must had access to the elevator, too. Furthermore, the characters revealing deliberateness at the top, expecting a locked door, but, however, checks it first, makes a merely missing at the base unlikely, especially, considering the - crucial - loss of time and of his capabilities, needed afterwards.
When the title is shown on screen in the opening credits, it's shown vertically alongside the Pearl building. This also happens in the end credits.
