Westshore Mall in Holland is getting a makeover.

Ground broke Thursday, June 11, on the $20 million de-malling and renovation project, WZZM-13 reports. 

Owner Gregg Erne say the result will be very similar to the renovations done at Centerpointe Mall in Grand Rapids. The enclosed mall will be transformed into a mostly outdoor shopping center called The Shops at Westshore.

Erne said, "They [Centerpointe] have been very successful. The main reason is the same reason we are doing ours. The enclosed mall on 28th Street ran its course as an enclosed mall. They tried it indoors and it didn't work, so now it's outdoors."

It's estimated that new construction will be done in six months, and all complete renovation should be done within the year.
