The Eastern portion of Cocowalk is nearly halfway demolished since demolition began in May and front part of the building started coming down in July. Replacing that section of Cocowalk will be the 5 story Class A office building One Cocowalk.

The last remaining store in the main rotunda, Starbucks, has since been closed and moved across the street. The main rotunda has been fenced off and will be demolished soon to make way for an open courtyard.
