You have to hand it to the real estate developers behind the Gate Tower Building in Fukushima-ku, Osaka, Japan (seen above) for making the most of limited space and building their office building over and around a highway running between the fifth and seventh floors. The building was planned after a highway was approved to run through the space, and it took five years for the building developers to reach a deal with the company running the highway. A change in zoning regulations in the late '80s finally cleared the way for the completion of the Gate Tower in 1992. Dense development is a good thing.
