The name Pipera is known to have originated from the existence of some pepper plantations in the area. In a monograph dating from 1966 it is mentioned that the ownership made by Cuza in 1864 determined the establishment of a village made of 15-20 peasants. The inhabitants were at that time serfs on the surrounding domains. Their ownership provided the first nucleus of the current community. Later, after most of Colentina was included in Bucharest, Pipera was abolished as an independent locality and included in the village and Voluntari, the commune became a city in 2004.

After 1989, the territory between Băneasa forest to the north, the Pipera-Tunari road to the south and the east, the Campul Pipera road to the west, becomes the northeastern administrative boundary of Bucharest. After this moment, Pipera begins to develop, the agricultural lands being parceled out and more and more constructions arised.
