However, in conditions where a grade separation between any arterial highway and property line occurs at a minimum of six (6) feet and a minimum setback of twelve (12) feet exists between the multiple-family development and conditions as stated above, an open decorative type wall is permitted in order to allow and preserve view opportunities.
