i360 tower on Brighton seafront granted planning permission

The i360 observation tower planned on Brighton seafront was granted planning permission last week. The 183m-high structure, dubbed the Brighton Eye, will be the UK's highest observation tower. Backers claim that it will boost Brighton's position as a tourist destination, create 109 jobs and act as a catalyst for regeneration. The tower, which will be managed by I-Xperience and designed by Marks Barfield Architects, will be located on the site of the Victorian West Pier.
