I think that may be a typo by Bldup. The MBTA board presentations I've seen in 2019 have all been pretty clear that the tower goes up with the bus terminal expansion.

Having listened to the podcast itself, the project he cites as going into (5 years of) construction in the Fall includes both the bus station and the tower. He emphasizes the bus station because the moderator had mentioned South Station Expansion and he wanted to make it clear he wasn't talking about new tracks, but unless Bldup heard something else after the microphone was turned off I think they made a mistake.

Re: South Station Tower | South Station | Downtown

^Bldup's own site lists the 677' tower as "Phase 1"

https://www.bldup.com/projects/south-station-air-rights

My guess is that the above may have been a poorly worded attempt to clarify/emphasize that the bus station/parking expansion is also part of Phase 1
