The Channel


To merely call The Channel building a residence is to overlook how much more it has to offer. Yes, it is a remarkable residence with unparalleled amenity spaces, but it is also its own vibrant community. The entire ground floor is dedicated to restaurants and shops including: our waterfront pub, The Brighton; Mexican cuisine in one of Mi Vida’s private dining rooms or on the waterfront; the classic burgers-and-fries experience of Shake Shack; and a French-Mediterranean restaurant featuring moules frites, tartines and a variety of coastal-inspired beverages, all set in a spacious waterfront fifth-floor terrace.

Given that it will be central to so much of The Channel experience, it is only fitting that The Anthem is to be found at the very center of the building. From hosting top-name music acts to serving as a decidedly unconventional convention facility, this concert venue is an entertainment destination with an amped-up edge. With a capacity of up to 6000 people, this acoustically advanced concert hall will host everything from rock gigs to intimate marquee performances to exclusive galas and more.
