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.

Simple: I’m stopping buying LG products. Then you won’t have the business here to warrant constructing such a gross insult to your NY customers.

With all the empty office space, like the failed secaucus mall project, why would you destroy this beautiful Historic land.

Please be mindful of the vistas we leave to our children, and grandchildren, and their descendants. Please do not interfere with the majestic view. Instead, leave a legacy of respect and good stewardship. Thank you.

I lived just below the Palisades for several years. They are a natural wonder. There are many structures within them LG could emulate. By doing so, LG could be an innovative force for wise land use.

the board should be investigated by 60 minutes because it appears this decision could only have been approved if someone was paid off

LG must think about improving its reputation and customer base by substantially lowering that massive tower.

We need to preserve areas like this – LG can build something that not destroy this area – allowing anything else is reprehensible.

Jon Dillard is right – SMART development would protect the beautiful Hudson River Palisades view shed and still provide alternative designs for LG’s complex.


But if SMART development cannot be agreed to – then the first priority should be to continue to protect and honor the pristine HR Palisades view shed that the holds a National Historic Landmark designation!

Protect the Palisades! Hell Yeah!!

I hold my PHD in conservation sciences and have devoted my entire life to “SMART” development that works for both the conservation of our planet and the progress of human society. This effort by LG is NOT by any means acceptable considering all of the alternative plans they could pursue.
