Isaia Corner

Isaia Corner is a small reserve on the corner of Miller Street and Albany Highway, next to the ‘peanut’ or ‘kidney’ roundabout in East Victoria Park. Rocco Isaia started R Isaia and Sons, a liqueur manufacturing company on the site in 1955. By 1961 R Isaia and Sons amalgamated with another business called Clarevale Wines and became Clarevale Isaia Pty Ltd.
In 2002 the property was acquired by the State Government and a roundabout built at the intersection in 2002. In November 2008 the Council passed a recommendation to name Lot 52 (684) Albany Highway, the site of the former business, “Isaia Corner” in recognition of the family. In March 2019 the Right of way running from Miller Street, behind Isaia Corner and Albany Highway, through to Mint Street was named Isaia Lane in honour of the Isaia family business.
