UK-based architectural practice Marks Barfield Architects is seeking a sponsor to build the i360 tower in Brighton, England.

The tower will be located in front of the derelict West Pier on Brighton's seafront and offers views across the city, seafront and the South Downs.

Work on the project began in 2008 but tough economic conditions have delayed work.

The tower was touted to be the highest observation tower in the UK in 2006.
