— A huge shopping mall, hotels and corporate offices may soon occupy space near RDU International airport. It's all part of a major land deal sealed Friday.

Tri-Land Associates bought the undeveloped parcel of property near the airport for $27 million. The land has been vacant for years.

While most predict rapid growth and development for the area, final plans on what will actually be build are not firm.
