I don´t think there is any rule that says they can´t if i´m not mistaken.
From the NY times a few years ago... obviously this is not true as far as the current heights of the towers but shows that there could be room for height changes.
"Mr. Foster's Tower 2 will rise somewhere from 1,300 feet to 1,450 feet; Mr. Rogers's Tower 3 from 1,250 to 1,350 feet; and Mr. Maki's Tower 4 from 1,200 feet to 1,300 feet. The Twin Towers of the World Trade Center, were 1,362 and 1,368 feet tall."
