"By the year 2030, the railway to Jerusalem will continue from the Navon Station to the Khan Complex, with a stop at the intersection of Jaffa and King George Streets." @jerusalem_city

The stop at King George makes no sense and I assume they'll nix it.
It not only makes sense, but it's expected to be the central station in Jerusalem, with more traffic than either Navon or the Khan. It will connect to the red and blue lines.
It's a stone's throw away from Navon and already connected by a light rail. There's a reason there's no rendering.
The renders you posted are precisely of this central station. They are not renders of the Khan station.

Here is another one, credit Ian Bader Architects:

The station is very important, because it makes no sense to force riders from outside Jerusalem to switch to the Red Line LRT and then to the Blue Line to get to Jerusalem's current main business districts. The Red Line is also running more or less at full capacity right now. IR simulations have shown that this station will not draw significant traffic away from Navon Station.
