FACT OF THE DAY:  The Building with a Highway Running Through It

The Gate Tower Building in Osaka, Japan is a 16-story building that has a unique characteristic unlike other buildings. It has an express highway running right through the middle of it. The highway runs between the fifth and seventh floors of the building, and the highway is the tenant on those floors. The highway tunnels through the building and comes out the other side. On the building’s floor information board on the ground floor, the tenants for the three floors are listed as the Hanshin Expressway. You can’t alight there though as the elevator skips from the 4th floor straight to the 8th

The property owners originally wanted to redevelop the land when approval for such a thing had been granted by the government in 1983. The problem was the government refused to issue building permits because a highway had already been planned to run through the area. The owners of the land negotiated with the Hanshin Expressway corporation for five years until they came up with the solution to run the highway directly through the building. It was eventually completed in 1992. The highway doesn’t touch the building in any way, but the highway department still has to pay rent on the floors it occupies.

Aside from the intrusive highway, business at the Gate Tower Building is almost normal. The highway does not make contact with the building, and a structure surrounding the highway keeps noise and vibration out.
