5, actually, just in the downtown core. Shell looked into building their own tower, but instead decided the current was good enough - it's currently undergoing some major renovation work both in the lobby and on the floors.
What's happened, of course, is that in the meantime the economy went nuts, and like all companies, Shell is scrambling to find more space NOW. Hence the bizarre floor allotments. I hadn't heard about specific floors in Livingston, but this doesn't surprise me at all - they likely initially signed up for 10, then with growth needed 10 more.
I think it speaks to just how many new staff the big companies have been hiring in just the past couple of years that we see a situation like this.
