  Bidders may deviate from the minimum upset rent structure as established and reflected in   the RFP/Information Packet dated October 3, 2008, under MINIMUM UPSET RENT on Pg. 3,  provided, however, that the present value of the total rent payments for the first 25 years of   the lease contained in the sealed bid shall equal or exceed the present value of the total   minimum upset rent payments on Pg. 3.

  1. For clarification purposes, there is a 40ft. setback buffer from Kanoelehua Highway running   along the entire western boundary of the subject properties. This 40ft setback has been   designated "Open" (O) zoning by the County of Hawaii.

  With regard to the portion of the 40ft buffer within the DHHL Parcel, by way of its   Memorandum of Agreement with the County of Hawaii dated December 27, 2002, DHHL   intends to exercise its authority, and designate the 40ft buffer within the DHHL Parcel as   Industrial/Commercial Mixed Use (MCX).

  The portion of the 40ft buffer within the DLNR Parcel remains designated Open (O) zoning   and compliance with all zoning regulations for the Open zoning district shall apply. All   references in the RFP/Information Packet dated October 3, 2008 to the ML-20 zoning   designation for the DLNR Parcel (including but not limited to the title page, section titles,  and pages 3 and 22) are hereby amended to incorporate the Open zoning designation for   the 40ft setback buffer.
