The Channel Club Apartment Tower in Tampa Changes Ownership for $136M

The Channel Club, a 22-story apartment community in Tampa, FL, has exchanged ownership for $136 million. The seller of the 324-unit high rise is Atlanta-based ECI Group; the buyer is Arlington-based Snell Properties.

Francesco Carriera of CBRE represented ECI Group.

The tower, anchored by a Publix Super Market (not part of the asset sale), was developed by ECI in 2019 and features one- and two-bedroom apartments averaging 911 square feet. Luxury touches include private balconies with Tampa skyline views while a resort-style pool boasts more panoramic views of downtown Tampa.

 The Channel Club is located in Tampa’s vibrant and walkable Channel District, a former industrial area. The ECI Group has started development on a Phase II property, the Parc Madison, with 351 apartment units, on the same block as the Channel Club and Madison Street Park.
