The Channel District/Channelside

The Channel District, also known as Channelside, is east of Downtown Tampa in the City of Tampa in Hillsborough County. Bordered by the Ybor Channel on the East and Garrison Channel on the South, it is no wonder how the Channel District was named. The Channel District is in the process of transforming from a warehouse and distribution area primarily for the maritime industry to an entertainment and residential district for people looking for an urban lifestyle. While you won't find a single family home in the Channel District, you will find Channel District condos if you enjoy the city-living lifestyle!
