Concrete in Kitchen Soffit?

I'd leave a way to vent the conventional oven too.

Has anyone ever run into concrete being in a soffit like this before? btw, the house was built in 1980
My apartment has a hollow wall where there's a concrete ceiling that's about 8" lower than the apartment ceiling. In my case it may be a steel beam in concrete.

I plan on leaving the vent. All I have to do is reroute the vent so that the 90* is higher than the ceiling. It looks like I would have room to do so.

Concrete no clue. But the soffit makes sense now.

Figured I'd post an update to let you guys know what I found out.

I had a couple different contractors come out and look at it to get their opinions. Both agreed that it was a structural piece to hold up the roof. Its a poured beam with rebar in running through it.

So in short....the soffit stays. lol
