They would still be in a higher floor because it's a psychological thing where they want to be separated from the "commoners".Olympus, Heaven, Limbo, L. Ron's penthouse etc

They probably wouldn't have built buildings as tall if there were no elevators.

In fact, it was. Before the elevators exist, the last stories of the buildings was for the poorest tenants.

Back in the day, this was indeed the case. You can see it in e.g. Downton Abbey. Ground floor is for all the official functions, first floor up is for private rooms, above that is the servants' common rooms and yet again on top was the servants' quarters.

In North Korea, it's not the first floor that's the best; it's too easy to break into. The second and third floor are reserved for the best people, though.

Not sure where you got this idea being above others and being able to “look down on them” gives feelings of power the higher the more powerful

Propably they would have their offices in the upper floors but they would have their residences near them. Any visitor would have to climb the stairs just to meet them.
