They have long been saying that it would impede construction. Basically what they would do is remove it and replace it later. The only problem with the High Line at that point is that it would actually be lower than the platform the buildings will be built on.

Still, its in the latest plans to keep it there, and it would be an amazing experience to have that last link connecting the High Line to Hudson River Park.
