Completed in 1992, the 71.9 m-tall building is Japan's first building to have a highway passing through it. The Hanshin Expressway passes directly through its 5th, 6th, and 7th floors and is deemed to be the tenant of those floors. It passes through as a bridge, held up by supports next to the building.

The highway through the building is called Hanshin Expressway, a 239km (149-mile) expressway running around the cities of Osaka, Kobe and Kyoto.
