Jetways At Far West End Of LAX Airfield

What are the jetways that are attached to separate, freestanding buildings at the far west end of the LAX airfield (immediately south of the touchdown zone for Runway 6R). Are these for remote boarding or for maintenance? If for maintenance, that seems awfully extravagant compared to the alternative of just having a few sets of airstairs to access the interior of the aircraft. If for boarding, why don't they just build in enclosures to make it a single remote concourse and then run shuttles between there and the main terminal area? It would seem to be an easy stopgap measure to add gate space until some of the grander expansion plans get implemented
