The Riverway is a commercial building of 62,345 square feet in a neighborhood plaza in Mattapan that provides ample parking and stays consistently busy all year long. Conveniently located next to the Central Avenue trolley stop on the Mattapan Trolley line, it is an example of transit-oriented development that serves the urban community so well.
The building is positioned on the Neponset River and offers some lovely views from the second floor office windows. The structure is sturdy, made of poured concrete and other materials. Built in the 1960s for a former Star Market, it is now home to several businesses and organizations. Because the land is on two levels, so are the building and parking lots. The upper lot was renovated in 2010, with façade improvements, new landscaping, lighting, fencing and parking lot resurfacing. The lower lot was refurbished in 2014.
On the lower level, Rite Aid is the principal occupant. The upper level includes Planet Fitness, Eblens shoe store, Andre Beauty Supply, and Small Smiles Dentist Office.
