Well, you may not feel that the 65ft setback is warranted, but the NYPD does. And since you can't get a building permit without the police department sign-off, the whole thing is a non-starter.

1WTC was ready to go into Construction Documents when the NYPD released their safety report in 2005. The tower had to be moved and the base re-designed as a result. All with the PA and Silverstein griping about it.

So laugh all you want, it's a real issue.

375ft does not = 343ft. It doesn't fit.
