The decision by Cheesecake Factory to open its second Indianapolis restaurant on the south side seems to validate the consensus among brokers Cheesecake Factorythat the area has been underserved by restaurants. The California-based chain is slated to open within a new lifestyle addition under construction at Greenwood Park Mall, according to mall owner Simon Property Group. The Cheesecake at The Fashion Mall at Keystone does more than $11-million a year in sales. Other new restaurant tenants for the Greenwood mall include casual Asian restaurant Stir Crazy and BJ's Restaurant & Brewery. Stir Crazy also plans to open at Castleton Square Mall, along with clothing retailer H&M. For more, check IBJ's print edition.

  • Let me get this straight: They're putting a Cheesecake Factory in a lifestyle addition of the mall? I understand that the Hoosier State ranks pretty poorly when it comes to obesity and physical fitness, but are there really some people for whom cheesecake is a lifestyle? Yowsers!

    Then again, I can think of worse lifestyles... and their cheesecake is darn good. Maybe I'm the strange one here.
  • There were several restaurants previously announced, such as Bravo and California Pizza kitchen. Have those fallen through or are the newly announced restaurants in addition to what was previously announced?
  • Good question, Barb. My understanding is the other restaurants are no longer part of the the lifestyle additions. I guess we'll know for sure in about six months. The projects are slated to open in time for the holiday season.
  • That's great for Greenwood and the south side. They are definitely underserved areas for top-notch restaurants. With a name like The Cheesecake Factory locating at the Greenwood Park Mall, other high profile names will be sure to follow.
  • Yeah for Cheescake Factory! Yeah for Greenwood!

  1. why oh why does this state continue to elect these people....do you wonder how much was graft out of the 3.8 billion?

  2. i too think this is a great idea. I think the vision and need is there as well. But also agree with Wendy that there may be better location in our city to fulfill this vision and help grow the sports of hockey and figure skating in Indy. Also to help further develop other parts of the city that seem often forgotten. Any of the other 6 townships out side of the three northernmost could benefit greatly from a facility and a vision like this. For a vision that sounds philanthropic, the location is appears more about the money. Would really like to see it elsewhere, but still wish the development the best of luck, as we can always use more ice in the city. As for the Ice growth when they return, if schedules can be coordinated with the Fuel, what could be better than to have high level hockey available to go see every weekend of the season? Good luck with the development and the return of the Ice.

  3. How many parking spaces do they have at Ironworks? Will residents have reserved spaces or will they have to troll for a space among the people that are there at Ruth Chris & Sangiovese?

  4. You do not get speeding ticket first time you speed and this is not first time Mr.Page has speed. One act should not define a man and this one act won't. He got off with a slap on the wrist. I agree with judge no person was injured by his actions. The state was robbed of money by paying too much rent for a building and that money could have been used for social services. The Page family maybe "generous" with their money but for most part all of it is dirty money that he obtained for sources that are not on the upright. Page is the kind of lawyer that gives lawyers a bad name. He paid off this judge like he has many other tine and walked away. Does he still have his license. I believe so. Hire him to get you confiscated drug money back. He will. It will cost you.

  5. I remain amazed at the level of expertise of the average Internet Television Executive. Obviously they have all the answers and know the business inside and out.
