The Cheesecake Factory is coming to Sundance Square, Sundance Square said Friday.

The restaurant has leased more than 8,700 square feet at 215 E. 4th St. That takes up the former Barnes & Noble cafe space and the Ferre restaurant, which is closing Sunday, Carolyn Alvey, a spokeswoman for Sundance Square, said.

“The Cheesecake Factory is a well-known brand with a loyal fan base that local residents and visitors alike will enjoy,” Johnny Campbell, CEO of Sundance Square, said.

The restaurant entrance will be at 4th and Commerce streets, he said. It will include 900 square feet of patio seating across from Bass Hall, the former Ferre patio.

“This space is truly unique and very high profile,” Campbell said.

Sundance said “details regarding the start of construction…are pending.”

“The Cheesecake Factory is one of the highest volume restaurant concepts in the United States,” Campbell said. “This restaurant will bring a lot of foot traffic to that corner of our development.”

Sundance has 18,000 square feet of “prime space” at 3rd and Commerce streets for “soft goods retail,” Campbell said.

“We have been talking to several national retailers about the space, and we anticipate this announcement will escalate those conversations.”
