Apparently they're back to looking at building the replacement on the existing site.

And it isn't a "surface parking lot for buses"; it's a giant bus terminal. Obviously it will be a vertical, tightly constrained complex.
Or you could build a nice spacious bus terminal on NJ side and build an express train ride into midtown from it for far less money. Manhattan simply doesn't have enough space to build a proper bus terminal for the volume of busses coming in, the moment a new one will be constructed it would be at full capacity right away.

Ditto for a convention center. Javitz is a disgrace.

Rest assured, this will be as disastrous, corrupt, incompetent and over budget a project as any in American history.
