FORT LEE, N.J. (AP) - The Palisades Interstate Park Commission has voted to ask an electronics company to reduce the height of a planned building along the Hudson River.

The commission unanimously approved a resolution Monday night that stated LG Electronics’ proposed 143-foot-high headquarters in Englewood Cliffs poses a threat to the scenic beauty to the area north of the George Washington Bridge.

The Record (https://bit.ly/1dtAGXm) reports the commission can’t force LG Electronics to reconsider the building’s height, but wanted to put its position on the record.

Opponents say the building will open the door for more high-rise buildings along the Palisades and compromise the view from the Hudson River and Manhattan. They challenged a zoning variance in court, but a Superior Court judge upheld the action. Environmental and preservation groups are appealing the decision.
