The WTC represented something big. I mean, they were the central buildings of the skyline of the downtown region of the most important urban agglomeration of all mankind. They were chosen as targets by the terrorists for this reason. No skyscraper, with the exception of the ESB, could have been more iconic than the WTC.

And the WTC had more elegant lines than the Sears, with is good looking building, but the Sears Towers is not in the same level as the ultimate definition of the box skyscraper that the WTC represented. And the WTC anchored downtown skyline in a perfect way:

WTC

Same reasons as other people:

Symmetry

Though very dull, also very imposing
