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 can’t believe this is even an issue! Thank you for all you’re doing. That ugly glass stick of a building next to the GWB is an ugly instrusion on the natural beauty of the Palisades on both sides of the Hudson and a scary indication of the crass ad sales and sheer disregard for the natural beauty of this area. We cannot have more of these pop up, and there is no reason to have buildings of that height. It is upsetting that Mayor Parisi is compromising all of us and for what ?

It is bad enough you are giving permission to destroy this magnificent site. To allow this company to put up a high rise is despicable. Masyor Joseph Marisi if you think you will have any future in politics you are destroying it now. I am a community activist with a long memory!

It’s unfathomable that a foreign corporation can come and threaten the preservation of our protected scenic places.
