Mall officials proposed creating a mixed-use area at the former Sears site that would have retail stores, office spaces and a hotel.
The proposal would cost about $290 million. It would generate more than 1,300 jobs.
"Our long-standing roots in Raleigh have allowed Crabtree Valley Mall to remain a leading retail destination and economic anchor in the region for over 45 years," mall leaders said in a statement. "But that doesn't mean we always will be. We have to plan for the future in order to remain strong and deliver the same far-ranging economic impact for the next 50 years."
