Cocowalk Celebrates 20 Years, Coconut Grove
Saturday November 20, 2010, 10AM
CocoWalk Holiday Preview Fashion Show, 8PM.
Twenty Years ago this November, CocoWalk opened to the public for the very first time. Originally developed by Constructa US, Inc & Steiner & Associates, Inc. CocoWalk has passed through 3 owners and seen many changes. When CocoWalk opened in November, 1990, AMC Cocowalk 16 Theaters was the center’s first and only anchor. Phase II of the center was completed in 1994, adding eight more screens and totaling the cinema’s composition to sixteen. In 2002, Phase III was completed, a four story office building. The entire first and most of the second floor allowed for the expansion of Gap.
In 2007, CocoWalk was purchased by PMAT, the current owner of the property. PMAT invested over $10 Million in renovations and upgrades and celebrated with a Grand Reopening in April 2007. Recently, the movie theater has undergone renovations, and reopened as Paragon Grove 13, on June 4, 2010, the first all hi-def luxery theater in South Florida. Other recent additions include Chiliâ€™s, Crazy Pianos, Bobby Chan and RodezArt.com Gallery. Opening soon are Central Beer Garden, Sushi Central and CocoWok.
To celebrate the 20 year anniversary, CocoWalk will host an all-day celebration on Saturday November 20, 2010. Live entertainment and activities begin at 10AM and continue into the evening, closing with the CocoWalk Holiday Preview Fashion Show in the courtyard at 8PM.
