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

     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
         in 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.
