A group of conservationists in the U.S. posted an ad containing messages toward South Korea’s President Park Geun-hye on the New York Times on Tuesday.

The ad was produced by Protect the Palisades, which opposes Korean tech firm LG Electronics’ plan to build a 44-meter-high corporate headquarters in Palisades, New Jersey, that boasts beautiful vistas.

Started by the words “President Park Geun-hye: An American landmark is at risk,” the message urges LG Electronics to change its original plan and build a low-rise office tower so as not to ruin its longstanding efforts to protect the unspoiled landscape.

In a response, LG said through its website that the new project has various benefits and it will ultimately support the community.

The ad was posted during President Park Geun-hye’s visit to the U.S. to raise her awareness of the issue.
