In Coconut Grove — Miami’s ‘Neighborhood With A Soul’ — Retail Is Reimagined

When retail plaza CocoWalk opened in Miami’s Coconut Grove neighborhood in 1990, the three-story, open-air mall was the place to stop for a fro-yo, a fruity cocktail or some khakis. Planet Hollywood, Cheesecake Factory, Gap — big retail tenants all cycled through over the years.
Now, as CocoWalk emerges from a multimillion-dollar renovation and another major mixed-use project, Regatta Harbor, takes shape too, they signal a pivot away from flashy consumerism, and an embrace of the waterfront neighborhood’s history.
