Originally built in 1872, Hastings Pier was closed in 2008 and badly damaged by a serious fire in 2010. The redevelopment, by the London-based firm, took more than two years and involved turning the former pavilion into a restaurant and bar.
Derbyshire also praised Hastings' locals for finding 3,000 shareholders to buy £100 stakes in "the people's pier".
