ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J. (AP) — Protesters plan to be on hand as LG Electronics breaks ground to build its corporate headquarters above tree-lined cliffs on the New Jersey side of the Hudson River.
The South Korean company on Thursday will plant the first of 700 trees on the 26-acre site.
Opponents on the New Jersey and New York side of the river say the 143-foot-high building in Englewood Cliffs exceeds a 35-foot height limit on buildings and would ruin the natural beauty of Palisades Interstate Park.
LG officials say the $300 million project will blend into its surroundings and boost the economy.
Opponents are appealing a judge's decision in favor of the project.
