Agreement will preserve scenic views of the Palisades

An agreement has been reached between LG Electronics and several conservation groups that will result in a lower building height for LG’s new headquarters in New Jersey, thereby preserving an unbroken treeline vista of the Palisades.

As originally planned, LG’s headquarters would have risen nearly 70 feet above the treeline, making it the first building prominently visible along a 20-mile stretch of this National Natural Landmark.

Scenic America was among the conservation groups to ask LG executives to preserve the scenic view of the Palisades with a lower building height.
