It would also appease the Pro-rebuild the Twin Towers movement that is going on. You don't have to have a superblock though like the original WTC. You can have the new Twin Towers stand on one block, and have other skyscrapers on other blocks like the regular Hudson Yards redevelopment project.
i wouldnt have mind the old WTC built at ground zero and the New WTC complex built at the Hudson Yards.

i dont suppose someone could create a rendering of that with photoshop or something?
