Chief operating officer Ian Hart said the viewing platform had a “bright future” and expected visitor numbers to increase after two successive years of decline.
He claimed the i360 would bring £640 million of extra money to Brighton by the time it repaid its £36.2 million loan in 2041.
“It has been a year of transformation,” Mr Hart said. “We have seen a very strong increase in visitor numbers this year.
“And for the last three years the contribution we have given to the local economy is very positive.”
The report claims the i360 has supported 447 local jobs across Brighton by bringing tourists to the area and paying its employees a living wage.
