I thought about that once, but abandoned malls are often in pretty bad shape, 
and not configured well for housing.
If you bought an abandoned mall, you’d probably end up razing it and starting 
from scratch.

There is a really interesting community in Denmark and one in British Columbia 
that each sort of resemble malls, with interior common spaces. They’re pretty 
nifty communities as I recall. Probably others too. The BC one even has 
underground parking! It’s been many years since I visited them tho.
