Discover how Chippendale architecture has evolved from a city slum to a hip inner city urban village on the AAA Chippendale Walk, taking place on Saturday 21 March 2020.
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 walk 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.
