Pedestrian Bridge over Shoreline Drive
The proposed pedestrian bridge over Shoreline Drive connecting Subareas 5 and 6 shall be constructed and opened to the general public concurrent with the development that occurs within LCP Subarea 5.

Seven large food icons not to exceed 70 feet are permitted within the gateway sculptural element provided that they do not extend south of the north curb of Shoreline Drive. Commercial uses, including restaurant table service, are not permitted on the bridge. All heights shall be measured from the average elevation at the front top of the curbline, or from the officially mapped flood hazard level of 13.8 feet above mean lower low water (MLLW), whichever is higher.
