Former Des Moines grocery store becomes STUDIO E9
Renovations to a nearly 125-year-old former grocery store near Iowa Lutheran Hospital were recently completed and the space can now be rented.
Details: STUDIO E9 is a brick building along East 9th Street that was once Capital Park Sundry.
- It sat vacant for years after a water pipe froze and caused extensive damage.
State of play: Sam and Kaylie Hoyle purchased the structure about two years ago.
- Its makeover includes restored hardwood floors, replaced windows and a new bathroom and kitchenette.
Zoom in: The upstairs is an apartment. The ground-floor space is being rented hourly for things like a photography studio or for daily events.
- The property also has a half-acre orchard, making it attractive for photographers and small events like bridal and baby showers, Sam tells Axios.
