    well stench?

    "...the smell was a mixture of apartment-building well stench, wet cement, mold,...."

    What does "well" mean here? To emphasize that it's really a bad smell? Or that the apartment has a well (to obtain water) that stinks?

    It might mean stairwell. The smell of the communal part of the apartment building - damp and sweat and perhaps worse, depending on the state of the building/inhabitants.
