Elevator in Mixed use residential

I have a new project in Calif where I have 4 2br appartments on the 2nd floor and offices on the 1st floor. From what I gather, we need an elevator to the 2nd floor per 1102A.1. Yet CBC 1007.2.1 seems to say different. I understand 1102A would override 1007, but just thought it strange.

The second floor has 4 rentable apartments and is considered a "Covered Multifamily Dwelling" (3 or more dwelling units). See 1107A.1-A for definition.

Since located on the second floor and above the offices, B occupancy, nonresidential; the ground floor in this case for the Covered Multifamily Dwellings becomes the second floor. The ground floor must be accessible via a ramp or elevator. An elevator is required to access the dwelling units on the second floor.

Each unit on the second floor must be designed to be adaptable (now that they are on an accessible floor) Razz

Chapter 11A applies to the Covered Dwelling Units on the second floor. Chapter 10 would not apply (accessibility wise) in this case.
