The report states that Scenic Hudson and New Jersey State Federation of Women's Clubs seek to overturn an Aug. 9 state Superior Court decision which upheld the height variance for the building which was given the okay by the borough's Zoning Board of Adjustment last year.
The appeal challenges the authority of the Board of Adjustment claiming that granting a height variance allowing the building to exceed the 35-foot height limit amounted to rezoning, according to NorthJersey.com.
This is not the first time the project has met opposition.
The project has been met with litigation from conservationists who claimed the building's height would damage the Palisades which has taken years of effort to preserve.
Also four former NJ governors were vocal about their opposition to the plans sending a letter to the CEO of LG Electronics in defense of the preservation of the Palisades.
Supporters of the LG plan have said it would create much-needed jobs in
the region and provide $1.3 million in tax revenue to Englewood Cliffs.
More than 300 union workers rallied to support the project in April.
Bergen County Executive Kathleen Donovan has also thrown her support
behind LG’s plan, calling the project a boon to the regional economy.
