    I was just browsing through spots in Brighton ahead of planning a trip with my group and stumbled across this article..

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...46-2MILLION-build-company-did-London-Eye.html

    It will boast 360 degree views of Brighton, and much like the shard will probably cost a ridiculous amount to go to the viewing platform.
    it is being designed by the same couple that designed the London Eye; husband and wife team, David Marks and Julia Barfield. Personally I think it will be a bit of an eyesore to the rustic charm of the Brighton seafront, but whatever brings the government money I suppose.

    If this goes ahead I imagine that there will be no external access once it is completed, but during construction I reckon it will be a scaffold-lovers wet dream..

    I cycle past this construction site most days on my way to work. So far they're still working on the foundations and have dug up and relaid the same section of the footpath twice. Although not an expert climber by any means, I reckon it would be amazing to get some photos of this on the way up.

    Looks more like a pole, than a tower!
