The VIVAs are an initiative of the International Council of Shopping Centres (ICSC) and are the most recognised achievement for professional excellence in the global retail real estate industry.

Each year the VIVA Best-of-the-Best Awards honours the most outstanding examples of shopping centre design and development, sustainability, retail store design and marketing, worldwide. They have been claimed by the world's best companies and shopping centre professionals.

But, the finalists first have to go through a rigorous regional round before they can be considered for the awards. As a gold winner of the South African Council of Shopping Centres’ (SACSC) Retail Design and Development Awards, the ICSC's regional awards programme, Mall of Africa was automatically entered in the prestigious VIVA global awards.

Atterbury’s development of Mall of Africa holds the honour of being the only mall on the African continent to achieve in the awards in this category this year.

Mall of Africa is South Africa's largest shopping Mall ever built in a single phase, with over 130,000m2 of retail space, it is home to over 300 shops, restaurants and services. The mall’s unique architectural appearance is inspired by Africa’s geological features and iconic landscapes, leading the way for its achievement in the VIVA design and development category.

Atterbury, the leading South African property investor and developer, developed the landmark mall.

Cobus van Heerden of Atterbury Property Development says the Mall of Africa was inspired by leading international trends in design elements and underpinned by solid retail property fundamentals.

“As developers of Mall of Africa, Atterbury is thrilled it has received international recognition among the most esteemed shopping centres across the globe. From its conception to its design and development, Mall of Africa was envisioned to create a world-class mall with a unique shopping experience unlike anywhere else,” says van Heerden.

“Every detail of Mall of Africa caters towards understanding and delighting customers and supporting the trade of retailers and being an asset for its community.  To receive recognition in the VIVA Awards reaffirms our commitment to delivering exceptional developments that offer designs and experiences second to none,” concludes van Heerden.
