Development of the area dates primarily from the late 1970s, with rapid growth into the late 1980s. The population increased during the 1990s as new dwellings continued to be added to the area. The population then declined slightly between 2001 and 2011, a result of little change in dwelling stock and a decline in the average number of persons living in each dwelling.
Keilor Downs is an established residential area.
