Cheesecake Factory adding restaurant in Huntersville’s Birkdale Village, building permit shows

HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. — Rumors about the Cheesecake Factory adding a location at Birkdale Village in Huntersville are gaining traction. A pending building permit has been filed in Mecklenburg County for a project called Birkdale Village Cheesecake Factory.

It lists 8701 Townley Road as the address. That 8,579-square-foot space was formerly home to Gap, which closed in late April when its lease expired.

Birkdale owner North American Properties said it could not confirm Cheesecake Factory as a tenant.

“We can’t comment on leases that are still in negotiation until it’s been finalized by all parties,” says Britni Johnson, NAP’s director of public relations.

This would potentially be the second location for The Cheesecake Factory in the Charlotte market. Its first opened in December 2002 in SouthPark.
