The fast-casual Mexican eatery is moving into the shuttered Carl’s Jr. space in the University Plaza shopping center, at 9160 Reseda Blvd., after several months of construction.

Ground on the new restaurant is expected to break Monday, March 9 following permit issuance by the City of Los Angeles last week.

An estimated $400,000 will be spent making “architectural” and “structural” alterations converting the former Carl’s Jr. into the new Chipotle, according to the plans.

It’s unclear why Chipotle is abandoning its current restaurant and moving into the retrofitted Carl’s Jr. space across the street.

When reached by What Now Los Angeles for comment Monday, a rep for the company confirmed the plans but didn’t have “additional details at this time.”

The existing 2,800-square-foot Chipotle space has already been listed for lease at $14,000 a month (or $168,000 per year), with five to 15-year terms available.

Chipotle’s relocation is expected to go down in August 2020 when its current home becomes available for a new tenant to move in.

Chipotle isn’t the only restaurant moving into University Plaza adjacent to California State University.

Two Hands, a Korean-American corndog franchise, is replacing the center’s longstanding SuperTans.
