Santa Monica Place won the 2013 Best-of-the-Best VIVA Global Design and Development Award, real estate investment company Macerich announced Saturday.

Macerich purchased the once-indoor mall in 1999 to renovate it and make it “better tie into the adjacent Third Street Promenade,” chairman and CEO of Macerich Art Coppola said in a press release.

The renovated outdoor shopping space reopened in 2010.

The VIVA Award is the latest of many accolades that Santa Monica Place has won in the past, including awards in design, development and sustainability.

The award was presented by the International Council of Shopping Centers at the annual VIVA awards.
