Highland Park Business District revival continues with Chuck’s Restaurant renovation

The building that houses Chuck’s Restaurant, one of Des Moines’ oldest dining establishments, is undergoing a $1.4 million historic restoration, adding to the revival occurring in the north Des Moines neighborhood.

The renovation includes replacing an aged roof and rehabilitating five apartments above the restaurant that have not been occupied for years. In addition, the renovation will include major structural repairs, updates to mechanical systems and improvements to the facade.

“Chuck’s is an important part of the Highland Park/Oak Park neighborhoods and we are excited to continue investing in this area,” Chuck’s owner Emily Jones said in a news release.
