    Another take on this road that goes right through the Gate Tower Building. Quite amazing. Wikipedia says it's nicknamed "The Beehive"

      Joits - I agree totally.
      borevagen - Thanks!
      cuxclipper1 - Thanks also!
      djipibi - Land must be so expensive there.
      sahlgoode - Neither would I. Imagine a fire or something happening inside.. I hope it's designed to handle all the possibilities.

      one42chrisp - LOL.. kind of a weird styled urban planning. If I read the Wiki article correctly it looks like this is a compromise decision between the land owners and the government who wanted the highway to go through that spot. The government pays rent for for floors 5 through 7 and put the road though them.. it's technically a bridge that doesn't touch the building in any way but the government pays rent for those floors. Seems like the land owners won :-) ..and nice to know our government isn't the only one who makes stupid deals.

      bluegoose0fox - Done! Thanks

      leerjp - Thanks, it is insane.
