The West Pier is a pier in Brighton. It was built in 1866 and has been closed and deteriorating since 1975, awaiting renovation, although after two fires and several storms, little is left in situ. In early 2006, the West Pier Trust announced a new plan to fund the restoration of the pier: a 183-metre observation tower, the i360, to be built on the West Pier promenade deck. The tower is planned to carry 100 visitors at a time to a viewing platform 150 metres above sea level.
