: : Why does it need to run horizontal below the flood rim. Can't you locate the drain and vent to the side of the window and run a trap arm over to where you need it?

: If I follow you, I don't think I can run the trap arm to the side and pick it up from there.

: The sink base cabinet is not as wide as the window, and the dishwasher is to the right side. On the left is an open shelving area.

: Aside from the asthetic issue (not important here) I just can't picture any way to get the trap arm to a suitable position.

These pipes should be in the wall, so it does not matter what is in front of them.
Plumbing matters should be your first consideration in a kitchen or bath remodel. You need to make your remodel fit your existing plumbing or be willing to do whatever is necessary to do the plumbing correctly. It is always a bad idea to try and jury rig the plumbing. I would also recommend that you make sure that you get this permitted and inspected.
