If this were in container, then you might could achieve this by root pruning. Unfortunately, if this is not a dwarf cultivar (even they can reach around 15-30 feet tall), you can expect it to reach well over the 50 foot mark. Pruning can help some, but a tree's height is usually set by genetics, among other minor factors.

If this is in a place where it could, potentially, do some damage you might consider moving it before it becomes too established to move.
