Tell LG and Englewood Cliffs: Protect the Palisades!

The iconic Hudson River Palisades, protected by more that a century’s worth of conservation efforts, are in danger of being spoiled forever. LG, the multinational electronics manufacturer, and the borough of Englewood Cliffs, under Mayor Joseph Parisi, are moving ahead with plans to build a massive tower that will forever change the nature of this beautiful American Natural and Historic Landmark.

LG has enough land to build a low-rise office building that would provide the same office space and number of jobs as its tower without harming the natural beauty of the Palisades. Despite that, the Borough of Englewood Cliffs changed its zoning laws to allow LG to build high above the tree line – changes that open the door to even more high-rise development along the unspoiled Palisades north of the George Washington Bridge.

Add your voice to the thousands who have already demanded LG and Englewood Cliffs rethink their plans. Tell LG and Englewood Cliffs: Construct a lower building that will protect the Palisades from irreparable harm.

 

To: Mayor Joseph Parisi and LG USA President William Cho 

From: [Your Name]

I am deeply disturbed by the plan to build the 143-foot high LG office tower in Englewood Cliffs just 50 yards from the Palisades Interstate Park. This tower would do irreparable harm to the character of the ageless Hudson River Palisades.

Such an act would undo a century of conservation efforts and violate the longtime trust respected by others for generations. It would spoil an American Natural and Historic Landmark and a park enjoyed by millions.

I urge you to alter LG’s plan and use a low-rise building design that would preserve the Palisades while still meeting LG’s needs. A new design also would provide just as many jobs and bring Englewood Cliffs the same tax revenue.

The legacy of this beloved Natural and Historic Landmark is a responsibility you must not take lightly. Once gone, the natural beauty of the Palisades cannot be reclaimed.

Let's get to work on a low-rise building that will be beneficial to all.

Dear LG, we have Rockefeller to thank for the wonderful view of the Palisades, without a cluttered landscape of buildings and other man-made objects. Please honor this and conserve the unspoiled view by NOT building a massive tower. Thank you, Ann Patton

If,at any time in the next 30 years I find that I can see the LG building from the NY side of the Hudson, ruining this stretch of the Palisades, I will never again purchase an LG product, and request that friends and family find other brands as well.


I would prefer that our nearby neighbor Englewood Cliffs, where I and my neighbors go for shopping and entertainment, find a less obtrusive way to bring business and tax revenue into the city.

The Palisades are magnificent. It is unconscionable they be scarred by development.

It is unthinkable that the beautiful Palisades view shed will be impinged by this massive tower. I will not purchase any more LG products if they go ahead. There is no need for them to construct on this scale.

I have two LG appliances (which I like a lot). If the tower goes up they will be the last I purchase — ever.

It is absord that such a high tower be visible from the banks of the Hudson River when it can be placed further inland.

Please leave the Palisades in tact. They are irreplaceable!

I think we should plan a major effort to boycott LG, should they go ahead with this construction.
