NSW: AAA Launches A New Walk In Chippendale

1803 a0

This month you won't want to miss out on joining the launch of the Australian Architecture Association's newest tour. The Chippendale Walk - developed and led by volunteer tour leader and architect Ben Gerstel, takes place on Saturday 17 March.

The inner city urban village of Chippendale is named after William Chippendale who was granted 95 acres of farmland in 1819.

This rapidly gentrifying suburb has a colourful history as an industrial centre. Over its history the suburbs main claim to fame has been its distillery and brewery and reputation as a slum housing prostitutes, rat catchers and nefarious criminal activites.

Over the 90 minute tour you'll discover some of the suburbs architectural gems, including the Mortuary Railing Station and garden, Spice Alley and Indigo Slam, an amazing residential project by Smart Design Studio.

As part of the tour and at the conclusion of this new tour, we will be serving light refreshments at the Old Clare Hotel. The Old Clare Hotel fits very well into the fabric of this precinct.
