A1 refers specifically to the Airport Access MRT stop, which is accessible via underground passage from Taipei Main Station, but will be directly under these towers. I'm assuming they probably ran out of space at TMS, or maybe having a separate area for the Airport Link is better logistically as TMS is already congested and overburdened. Moving the bus hub away from TMS will also do well to remove congestion in that area.
