The i360 is set to start building soon, and it's located in the south part of England in the city of Brighton.

The design was completed by Marks Barfield Architects, a well-known firm that was also responsible for developing the famous London Eye in the country's capital. Now the team is turning their attention to this beachside town with the i360. The pod is aerodynamic, and will allow people to observe the surrounding ocean and beach areas in Brighton. The hope for the development of this structure is that it will boost tourism in the area, creating new jobs and reinvigorating the economy. The good part is that while the tower might attract new visitors, they will stay for the beautiful views of the area and hopefully spread the word.
