  • Gyro Tower Westcliffe Casino Southend

Other Information

  • The Gyro Tower was planned as an observation platform set in what is currently the sea, much in the form of Portsmouth's Millennium Tower.
  • Driving the project was the bullish property market and the confident approach of casino owners, and particularly MGM, who saw the potential liberalisation of their sector by the government as a boon for expansion.
  • Unfortunately for them, this was not to be as the replacement of Tony Blair with Gordon Brown at Number 10 caused substantial government backtracking that has seen many ambitious casino schemes along with their associated buildings iced including the Gyro Tower.
