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.

I am so against the construction of a commercial tower that distracts from the natural beauty of the Palisades, one of the few pristine areas near New York City where we can imagine the unspoiled vista preserved since the day Henry Hudson sailed up the river.

It’s so important to protect and preserve these historic, unspoiled landscapes! As a resident of the Heights neighborhood of Jersey City, I actually live on the palisade, and appreciate seeing the transition from urban to rural as I bike, or experience it from NYC or on the Hudson River. It’s important for our region’s history and tourist economy to protect this historic evolution, for others to appreciate.

Fix this Parisi, this is all your fault. You misled the people of Englewood Cliffs. We’ll never forget the night you and your union members purposely prevented residents(mostly seniors) from attending a meeting about LGs building in 2014, leaving us out in the cold rain outside. Now there is a bill in the N.J. Senate to prevent this from happening again.The election for E.C. Mayor is next year, Good Luck.

There are few things that root me to the area in which I grew up more than the Palisades. I was just at The Cloisters for the first time in many years. What a loss it would be to the area to have the view from the Cloisters spoiled as it would be if LG went through with its planned tower!
