According to court documents, the general contractor working on the Soleil Center near Crabtree Valley mall is suing the developer for more than $900,000.The general contractor, Hunter Roberts Construction Group LLC, signed onto the project in August of 2007. Glen-Tree Investments LLC, owns the property where the center is to be built.

According to the lawsuit, Hunter Roberts says Glen-Tree agreed to pay them for labor, materials, equipment and services for the center. However, Hunter Roberts says they have not received payment from the developer.

Read more details filed in the lawsuit.

Glen-Tree admits at least $918,320.00 is due to the contractor, but they do not have available funding to pay the amount. So Hunter Roberts is suing the company for their losses.

Construction to the site on the corner of Glenwood Avenue and Creedmoor Road has been stalled since spring of this year.

The 43 story project is slated to be the tallest building in the Triangle. Plans propose the building would house a hotel and condominiums.

The building that previously stood across from the Crabtree Valley Mall was demolished in 2006 to make room for the condos, which will range from $700,000 to $3 million.

In 2007, the Soleil Group said they decided to build in mid-town instead of downtown Raleigh because of the potential for growth in the next five-years.
