Highland Park progress continues with Chuck’s Restaurant renovation

One of Des Moines’ oldest restaurants will undergo a historic renovation as the neighborhood around it experiences a renaissance of sorts. 

About $1.4 million will be invested in the 125-year-old building that’s home to Chuck’s Restaurant, 3610 Sixth Ave., to fix a falling roof and exterior wall, upgrade mechanical systems, improve the façade and renovate five upstairs apartments that have been vacant for several years.

The project is a partnership between the restaurant’s owner, Emily Jones; Neighborhood Development Corp.; and Invest DSM.
