The Whiteaways Arcade (GPS: 5.41763, 100.34225) is an elegant colonial-era building along Beach Street, George Town. The block got its name from its original occupant, the Whiteaways & Laidlaw General Store which was at the Bishop Street end of the building, while the Netherlands-Indian Bank occupied the Church Street end of the building. During the British administration, Whiteaways Building housed upmarket shops and offices.
The Whiteaways building was constructed in the early 1900's. On the upper floor are beautiful windows in the eclectic style. These are accentuated by moulded plaster. The facade is decorated with plasterwork of flowers and garlands. At the time of writing (18 June 2008), the Whiteaways Building was undergoing restoration work.
