This is a case of an immovable object meeting an irresistible force.

Specifically, the owners of this land received permits to build the building about the same time as the planners of the highway laid out the exit. The immovable object would not agree to let the land go to waste and the highway planners felt that this exit HAD to go here. So, an interesting and fairly unique cooperation formed. The highway is suspended on its own pilings and creates no additional vibration in the building. The tunnel structure keeps the noise and the noxious fumes away from the tenents of the building. The building owner gave up the 5-7th floors
