LG Englewood Cliffs Approval Scrutinized By Appellate Court

This view of the Hudson River Palisades will be ruined, preservationists say, if LG Electronics builds a 143-foot headquarters. LG had agreed to reduce the height, but an Englewood Cliffs citizens' group is pursuing an appeal anyway.

ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J. -- A controversial decision by the Englewood Cliffs zoning board to approve a 143-foot corporate headquarters atop the Palisades is being debated before the state Appellate Court, NorthJersey.com reported.

The three-judge panel is reviewing the Superior Court decision upholding various 2012 approvals LG received for its new headquarters, including a height variance allowing it to construct a 143-foot office building, according to the story. The building height “pierced the tree line” and intruded on the scenic vista of the cliffs of the New Jersey Palisades, a national historic landmark, according to NorthJersey.com.

Although LG made an announcement last summer announcing they have changed their minds and are reducing the building to 69 feet, Englewood Cliffs residents still are fighting the decision because legal representatives for the two women who filed the initial suit weren’t included in the settlement talks, NorthJersey.com said.
