The Gate Tower Building is a 16-story office building in Fukushima-ku, Osaka, Japan. It has a highway that passes through the 5th-7th floors of the building. The highway is part of the Hanshin Expressway, a network of 239.3 km of expressways surrounding Osaka, Kobe and Kyoto, Japan. The Gate Tower Building is Japan’s first building to have a highway pass through it.

The elevator doesn’t stop on floor 5th-7th, floor 4 being followed by floor 8. The highway passes through the building as a bridge, held up by supports next to the building making no contact with the building itself. Generally expressways are built underground, and passing through a building is an extremely engineering achievement
