Right. The Twin Towers were spaced about 100 feet apart, and arranged so that the edge of one tower's wall was on the same line as the other tower's opposite wall. I've done up a quick recap of the site; the new memorial footprints will correspond roughly to the actual locations of the Twin Towers which I've outlined in red, with the new towers surrounding:

You can even see the outlines of the old foundations, inside my red boxes.

Now, from the looks of the most recently posted images, they don't appear to have really made much progress on the south memorial footprint yet, and I tend to agree with JSsocal's theory.
