A Burger King spokesman said the fast-food restaurant near McKellips and Recker roads is slated to open in the first quarter of 2020.
A 3 a.m. kitchen fire at the then-newly renovated Burger King was fast-moving, but Mesa firefighters saved most of the structure.
The July fire was contained to the kitchen area, which presented challenges to the fire crews on scene, according to a fire department spokesman.
The fire spokesman said any remodeling can alter the basic floorplan or materials that firefighters would expect to find in the building and change the way they attack the fire. No one was injured in the fire and the cause was undetermined because the structure partially collapsed.
