Chippendale is named after William Chippendale, an early land holder in the area.
Chippendale Settlement History
Settlement of the area dates primarily from 1848 when many working class houses were constructed. By the early 1900s the area was characterised by terrace row houses and industries such as the Kent Brewery, Brisbane Distillery and CSR Refinery. In 1914 Strickland House was built as the first public housing project in Sydney, being the prototype for low income or worker’s housing. Significant redevelopment took place from the end of the 1970s, with many terrace houses restored, and warehouses and industrial sites converted into new residential apartments. Rapid population growth took place between 1991 and 2006 as large numbers of new dwellings were added to the area. Growth slowed between 2006 and 2011 as fewer new dwellings were added. Considerable growth is expected in the future, primarily from the Central Park development on the former Kent Brewery site.
Major features of the area include the University of Technology Sydney (City Campus Blackfriars) and The University of Notre Dame Australia (Broadway Campus). It is also the home of Flowers For Passion.
