LIBERTY TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

The first four restaurants to sign opening agreements at a $350 million development project in Liberty Township were announced on Tuesday.

Brio Tuscan Grille, Cheesecake Factory, Kona Grill and Pie & Pints are set to open in the Fall of 2015 at the Liberty Center, located at the I-75 and SR 129 interchange in Butler County.

The four restaurants will comprise more than 600 dining seats at the Liberty Center, joining anchor stores Dillards and Dicks Sporting Goods. A movie theater and hotel are also slated to open at the development.

The Liberty Center has 620,000 square feet dedicated to restaurants, according to Steiner + Associates, the development managers also behind Columbus' Easton Towne Center. The entire Liberty Center will be 1.1 million square feet of shopping, office, residential and dining space.

Up to $43 million in taxpayer-backed funding was committed to the project, including $31 million worth of publicly-backed bonds.

This will be the second Cheesecake Factory in the Tri-State behind the restaurant's location in Kenwood that opened 10 years ago. Brio has five other Ohio locations, with the closest Tri-State restaurant at Newport on the Levee.

Representatives say Kona Grill serves American food with a variety of international influence, including sushi. Liberty Township will be the first Tri-State Kona Grill location.

Pie and Pints is known for their selection of beer and pizza. They have two other Ohio locations in Dayton and Worthington.
