The Mayor of Torbay is due to unveil a plaque to mark the completion of a waterfront project in Torquay, costing nearly £3 million.
The first phase was to rebuild part of the Princess Promenade and the second involved redeveloping the historic seaside platform known as the Banjo.
Stairs have also been added to improve access.
The official opening ceremony will take place at 5.30pm.
The Mayor of Torbay, Gordon Oliver, has welcomed a £20 million package of proposals to redevelop Torquay's seafront, saying the council couldn't afford to do the work itself.
– George Oliver, Mayor of Torbay
I am impressed by the group's proposals for the Pavilion. [...] The Pavilion needs several million pounds spent on its refurbishment, which we as a council simply cannot afford. We would also face ongoing maintenance liabilities that come with a listed building of this nature.The hotel development would safeguard the future of this important listed building, whilst at the same time creating much needed employment and economic activity for the Bay. The proposals for cafes and shops would bring new vitality to the area fronting the inner harbour.
A £20 million planning application has been submitted to Torquay Council to redevelop the town's pavilion and build a luxury hotel and 45 apartments nearby.
The seafront plans, from developers Nicolas James Group, include a 60-bedroom luxury hotel and spa over the marina car park. New cafes and shops would front the inner harbour, with 45 apartments above.
It is proposed that the restored pavilion will include the hotel reception, cafe, restaurant, spa and function rooms. If planning permission were granted, work would start in early 2014.

Tony Hogg, the Devon and Cornwall Police and Crime Commissioner, has called for action on 'legal highs' after three teenagers were hospitalised in Devon over the weekend - two in Exeter and one in Torquay.
Mr Hogg says he wants to work with other leaders to introduce new legislation. He wants the drugs to be removed from the high street, and retailers held responsible for any harm their substances cause.
Mr Hogg has already confronted staff at a 'head shop' in Barnstaple where the drugs were being sold.
– Tony Hogg, Devon & Cornwall PCC
I wanted to ask the staff in the shop if they actually knew what it was they were selling and how dangerous it is. Not surprisingly I didn’t get a very favourable response, but I am determined that the subject of legal highs needs to be brought to the top of the agenda before someone actually dies after taking one of these chemicals.

As a luxury house in Torquay is sold for a fraction of its worth because of its precarious position on a rapidly eroding cliff, the auctioneer says the buyer has taken quite a risk.
– Graham Penny, Auctioneer
The property's enviable sea views does mean it's relatively close to the cliff edge and other neighbouring properties have experienced substantial subsidence.It’s impossible to say whether Tor Cottage will be subjected to subsidence itself. A buyer could get a return on their investment if Mother Nature is kind to them.
Tor Cottage was sold for £33,500 (including fees) today. Normally it would be worth around £400,000 if it was not for the erosion. The house next door has already collapsed into the sea.
There is an order in place preventing buyers from staying overnight until they can prove it's safe.
