A new round of major construction begins Wednesday. Crews will demolish the eastern side of the complex to make way for new stores and an office building.

All of the stores at CocoWalk, including the movie theater and health club, will remain open during construction.

Once complete, the new and improved CocoWalk will feature a large open-air plaza, foliage, a mini-waterfall, trees and a modern, subdued design intended to blend in with the surrounding Coconut Grove neighborhood.

Current tenants such as Youfit Health Club and The Gap are staying put.

The construction is scheduled to finish at the end of next year.
