I think both these statements are true. The renovated garden will comply with the fire code for number of exits per occupancy, width of hallways, sprinklers, etc...

But also, if there were a large fire you would have a major stampede and it would be difficult for the people in the middle of the 200's to get out quickly. I think people would be able to get out, but there would be a lot of broken bones & bruised / traumatized people
