It probably just won't have windows any longer, which is very common in Manhattan construction projects.
Many, many buildings have windows that aren't protected by any building department rules. They can be covered up when a new building is built.
I assume they're building right to the lot line, and so the windows will be bricked up. Tough luck to the neighbors, but they knew what was eventually coming.
Only the windows directly facing the sidewalk are protected in perpetuity. A landlord adds windows to the other sides of the building at his own risk.
