It's the most convenient place to marshal supplies for the lift to orbit, which also means that Grand Celestial Station One would be (although initially a Naval station) the principal trade hub for all offworld business, and would have access to EVERYTHING. It'd be the Empire's flagship void project and therefore super-swanky to impress anyone who visits...of course you'd also have the smugglers and black marketeers holing up in the seedier corners of the station. And the Navy would have to maintain a significant defensive presence to deter attackers...so much potential for stories.
