Nothing, no matter how big, hard and heavy it is, that will ever find itself above this mudball with nothing or not enough to support it's weight below it will ever reach the ground faster than freefall. As a matter of fact most things will hit terminal velocity before they reach the ground.
If the towers were in a vacuum they would have reached freefall speed
The only possibility for them to *surpass* freefall speed would be that the culprits increased the gravity in that area. Is that what you are saying? You are aware that that would be way beyond hologram planes and space beam weapons on the scale of space opera - sci fi ness?
... actually even increasing gravity would not make the buildings fall faster than freefall, it would just push freefall accelleration up.
