Gate Tower Building

Gate Tower Building

The Gate Tower Building (Japanese "ゲートタワービル"), it is the office building of the terrestrial 16 floor building which is the Osaka city Fukushima Ku. Alias “beehive (Bee Hive)” with, Bee Hive “the honeycomb”, in the sense, “bustling place”.


As for the building double core type is adopted in circular planning. When the Osaka and Kobe highway 11 the Ikeda line Umeda exit (it gets off from Ikeda direction side with setting of division surface rights,) has penetrated in the 5~7 floor of this building, the part of the 5~7 floor the Osaka and Kobe highway has become the shape which has entered as a tenant. As for the elevator as for the next of the 4th floor we have reached the 8th floor, it does not get off in the floor the middle. The part other than the highway of the 5~7 floor has become the stairway and the elevator etc. We do not ground the highway in the building, are independent altogether completely, the building dismantle and there are no times when the highway deteriorates (there is a pier immediately in side of the building). We have not grounded in the building, in addition, as for the penetration part because it is covered in the soundproof shelter, noise and the vibration etc are not felt inside the building. The roof has become the heliport.

The reason which has been penetrated

The area authority of this land from early Meiji era had operated the fire-wood industry and the like at this place, but because the company building deteriorated, we had decided to reconstruct in 1983. But, because it has been decided that the highway passes due to city planning construction permit did not descend. Area authority side because you cannot transfer, it negotiated the Osaka and Kobe highway public corporation (at that time) with over approximately 5 years, conclusion it did by the fact that it passes through the highway to the building.

Like this case, site purchase becomes necessary when it passes through the highway and the like, but because there is a circumstance even on area authority side, there is many a thing to which site purchase succeeds always and not to limit becomes problem.

Because of that, portion of road method, city planning method, urban renewal method and construction standard method was amended in 1989, one improvement of the road and the building etc was recognized, the three-dimensional road system was enacted (as for originally this system, annulation 2 around the Tokyo Minato-ku Toranomon the line (as for the part of that the alias MaARTHUR road is called) construction promotion was purpose, but it was not applied result). Because of this, it reached the point where the building which the highway penetrates can be built. The gate tower building is the building which for the first time utilizes the three-dimensional road system in Japan. But usually, being general on the underground to arrange the building in the road and the ground, as for the road part penetrating the building quite it is rare.
