Having been involved in a big ground-up rewrite (painful, everything takes longer than everybody thinks or is willing to stomach) I would tend to favour an incremental refactoring approach.

So (if possible) put the new code in the same site as the old, and start replacing features one by one.

I wouldn't envy the person who has to extract that SQL out of WebForms though!
