Channel District

Channel District

Over the last several years, Downtown Tampa’s Channel District has evolved significantly. Home to a historical industrial port, it is also activated by a busy cruise ship port which brings in a weekly influx of thousands of visitors. In addition to its ports, the Channel District is home to a large and active residential community. Due to its proximity, the neighborhood is self-contained and offers its residents almost all of their daily needs. This neighborhood’s residents can be seen exercising, walking their dogs, and frequenting their local businesses. The active nature of this neighborhood has created an appealing urban-relaxed atmosphere that has allowed the Channel District to become the highest concentrated residential community in Tampa’s Downtown.
