Chippendale is a small inner-city suburb of SydneyNew South WalesAustralia on the southern edge of the Sydney central business district, in the local government area of the City of Sydney. Chippendale is sandwiched betweenBroadway to the north and Cleveland Street to the south, Sydney Central railway station to the east and the University of Sydney to the west.

COMMERCIAL AREA:

The eastern side of Chippendale, being adjacent to the CBD, includes a greater mix of uses than other parts of the suburb. It includes commercial uses such as offices and warehouses, with higher buildings facing Regent Street and Broadway. Elsewhere in Chippendale there are scattered shops, cafes and pubs. The small suburb depends on Broadway for shopping and services. The historic Regent Street railway station or 'Mortuary Station' is located on the eastern side of the suburb.

The John Storey Memorial Dispensary was built in 1926 as a memorial to John Storey, a former Premier of New South Wales. It is located in Little Regent Street and still functions as a pathology and methadone clinic.

CENTRAL PARK:

Chippendale is notable for being the location of the 168-year-old Carlton & United brewery, which closed in the 2000s. Frasers Property Australia purchased the brewery site from the Foster's Group on 29 June 2007. In July 2008, Frasers Property lodged a modified concept plan with the NSW Department of Planning proposing a mixed-use development called Central Park for the 5.8 Hectare site. The development proposal includes approximately 250,000 m2 of commercial and residential space, retention of a number of heritage buildings and the development of a large new park for Chippendale.

Central Park is also the name of an existing building on Chalmers Street, Surry Hills, overlooking Alfred Park and Central Station.
