The bookstore, which will have an annex on the ground floor of the tower, will occupy 6,500 square meters in all, and provide cultural and creative services as well.
It's a strategy that Eslite has adopted to survive and thrive in the online era, when traditional bookstores are struggling to stay afloat.
And the innovative strategy appears to be working wonders.
