Business is Great on Whiteway Corner because of at least 5 unique aspects of its location:


1. It is virtually in the center of the Riverside Avondale Historic District. Recently the RAHD has been named one of the top neighborhoods in America by The American Planning Association. Also, Forbes Magazine has named RAHD one of Americas Best Neighborhoods . Several years ago, Money Magazine named RAHD as one of the Best Places to Retire;

2. It is located 1/2 miles from St Vincents Medical Center, which employs 2000 people, as well as creating a frenzy of activity with visitors for the hospital, medical offices with visiting patients, and supply deliveries;

3. Whiteway Corner provides right turns around itself for easy parking access;

4. Over 5 million vehicles pass through the Park and King intersection each year; and

5. The Building on Whiteway Corner has high site prominence because it is located about 20 feet from the streets.

Whiteway Corner has been located on the southwest corner of Park & King since 1927. Strategically placed in the middle of Riverside, it has been a mecca for retail stores and professional offices down through theyears. Today Whiteway Corner continues in that tradition with renovated offices and three of the finest restaurants in the historic district.
