Meet the Neighbors — New Openings in Downtown Tampa’s Channel District

Downtown Tampa’s Channel District continues to rise with a growing list of additions to the neighborhood. The recent introduction of Sparkman Wharf was a breath of fresh air, adding new energy to the district with its eclectic assortment of foods, beverage and entertainment outlets.

The district shows no sign of slowing down with quite a few concepts poised to join the existing array of shopping, dining, nightlife and entertainment:

Water Street
Designed with wellness in mind, Water Street will introduce a new lifestyle into downtown Tampa that promotes an active pedestrian lifestyle. The project includes the first new office building in 25 years as part of the nine million square feet of new retail, cultural and educational spaces. This historic undertaking is designed to promote a seamless integration of experiences, from biking and green spaces to innovative dining and entertainment – all with an emphasis on sustainability and environmental care.

Union Three
Yoga. Spin. Cycle. Three fun fitness classes you’ll soon be able to enjoy at this boutique studio that will soon bring a new era of wellness, community and coffee to The Channel District. And this isn’t a get in and get out type of environment – a spacious lounge area invites members to sit and have a refreshing beverage with their new workout friends.

Park & Rec
Childhood fun gets an adult spin in this adult playground opening soon to the Channel District. Made popular in Downtown St. Pete, Park & Rec will give downtown Tampa a new way to relax and have fun. A nostalgic menu of food and drinks and a host of throwback games will make this go-to spot for adults of all ages.

This popular dessert concept, launched by three Italian friends in South Beach, Miami, will bring its freshly made treats to downtown Tampa. Featuring unique flavors from locally sourced produce and high-end ingredients from around the world (like pistachios straight from Italy), Gelato-Go will be a popular place to beat the summer heat.
