Construction work for I360
Construction work for I360
The i360 is an 162-metre (531 ft) observation tower being constructed on the seafront of Brighton, near to the West Pier. It is designed, engineered, manufactured and promoted by the team responsible for the London Eye. Dutch steelwork specialist Hollandia has prefabricated the tapering steel sections of the tower, known by the team as 'cans'.
The projected cost of the tower is 46 million, with 36 million being funded by a loan from Brighton and Hove city council. In 2014, some local residents launched a petition to oppose the loan. The owners of the site, The West Pier Trust, hope that a successful i360 will lead to the rebuilding of the historic West Pier.
