That's unlikely - USPS is so reticent to sell because they want to stay there, not because they're holding out for something.Amidst all the pearl-clutching and teeth-grinding I'd love to see USPS sell some or all of the property adjacent to South Station and flip the bird at the MBTA and the City. Even if the South Station site was build-ready and the adjacent lot required demo/clean up/excavation, it'd still likely welcome tenants before the Tabasco bottle's first piece of steel went up.
Can we also acknowledge that building on air rights is really, really complicated? Not just in the sense that "they already have the piles driven though!" but also in the sense that they need to build over one of the most prominent train stations in the US while it operates. The building is approved - most of this last year has been negotiations on construction management.
