Putian is a remarkable city decorated by its rich historical past, and mix of history which has permeated the world around. At the water’s edge, Sheraton-Putian symbolizes a legacy influenced by cultural progression and a beautiful, 21st century cityscape.

The scheme is influenced by Mazu, the sea goddess protectorate of the region. The design creates a feeling of safety and peace along the river. A distinct, formal arrangement of building massing reduces the tower's scale to compliment the surrounding residential area.
