The i360 is also giving back to the local community, through its £36 million loan repayment it took out to build the landmark. It has repaid £2.6 million back to Brighton and Hove Council so far. £1.8m of this is profit from the repayments and is going to be used for two projects around Brighton. The Madeira Terraces will receive £1.1m to help fund their restoration and the remaining money is going to be put back into the landscaping of the area surrounding the observation tower.
