The store was the first ever branch of Eslite Spectrum, the iconic Taiwan-based art and culture brand, to open on the Chinese mainland. Another branch has since opened in Shanghai.

The center is designed to function as a new platform for cross-Straits cultural exchange, and to offer local residents a new kind of lifestyle.

With five floors in total and a whole retail space of more than 130,000 square meters, Suzhou Eslite also contains an art gallery and many other recreational facilities to give customers different cultural and lifestyle experiences.

Stationery stores, cafes and dessert restaurants are scattered on each floor, as well as other stalls selling traditional Suzhou handicrafts like local embroidery, wood engravings and folding fans. Many Taiwan brands have also settled in Suzhou Eslite to give mainland customers opportunities to learn more about Taiwan.

Lectures, art exhibitions and performances are also held throughout the year.
