Because there is no place for a concrete core. There are tracks under de building. A concrete core is heavy. This building is so wide it is stif enough

A concrete core is heavy? Really? And what is a steel core, light? And what does it have to do with anything? The building rests on bedrock and naturally it's going to be insanely heavy.

This building could have gone either way, but I think initially both towers were meant to be steel, but Related ran into some trouble with the unions so to resolve that they went all concrete on the coach tower.

I'm not a structural engineer, but steel is much lighter than concrete, and provides more strength than concrete, but is more expensive.

Yeah this is my understanding, it was a dispute with the Steelworkers. Seems like a hell of a lot of trouble to go to, completely reengineering the tower just to work around negotiations... But I guess that's playing hardball.

No, it doesn't. It's arched over the rail yards. Obviously the sides of those arches touch bedrock, but the core is suspended above them and never touches bedrock.
