Many transportation terminals are in use while rebuilt. Also, if you mean the post office serving as an expansion as the "available building across the street," that will only be a band aid measure. If you mean the historic Pennsylvania Hotel, demolishing rather than restoring is counterintuitive to why the post office will be adaptively reused in the first place, and is about as cost effective to rebuild and expand on a leasehold anyway.
