Thanks to the efforts of many, the Palisades have once again been saved from unnecessary development. On June 23rd, the Protect the Palisades leadership team announced that an agreement had been reached with LG Electronics to lower the height of their proposed corporate headquarters to just below the treeline, ending a two year old battle.
The negotiations between LG and the Protect the Palisades coalition were ongoing since an appeal was filed nearly a year ago. Scenic Hudson, the Natural Resources Defense Council, the NY-NJ Trail Conference, the NJ Federation of Women’s Clubs, and Larry Rockefeller led the negotiations to their successful conclusion.
The Conservancy would like to express its heartfelt thanks to everyone who pitched in to make this possible. Well done!
Tell LG: Don’t spoil America’s Palisades
LG Electronics, a giant overseas maker of TVs and other consumer products, wants to build an enormous 143-foot office tower on the Hudson River Palisades that would rise high above the ridgeline and spoil the natural beauty of this iconic American landmark. Send a message demanding that LG consider an alternative proposal that would protect the famed Palisades.
Protect the Palisades, a coalition of individuals and organizations in New Jersey, New York and across America, is dedicated to preserving the Hudson River Palisades.
The ad hoc coalition has come together in response to the current threat posed by LG Electronics’ plan to build a towering corporate headquarters that will violate the Palisades’ historic landmark views.
Millions of residents and visitors have enjoyed the spectacular cliffs and parkland that have been preserved for over 100 years through the hard work and goodwill of many civic groups and prominent citizens. The following are proud members of Protect the Palisades:
