Bankview Homes For Sale - Calgary
Find the newest homes for sale in Bankview and Calgary condos below!
Bankview is an attractive inner-city community in southwest Calgary, built along the side of a hill where early residents had a view of the far away “bank” of the Bow River. Bankview rises south of 17 Ave SW to 26 Ave SW, in between 14 St SW and 25 St SW. The area was settled in the late 19th century by the Nimmons family, and their lovely Victorian brick home still stands just off the corner of 17 Ave SW and 14 St SW. Development of the neighbourhood began in 1908 and in 1950, new walk-up apartment buildings began to appear once zoning changes ushered in densification of the community.
Bankview, Calgary has become the ideal residence for students and young professionals due to its proximity to the University of Calgary, SAIT and downtown. It also features a centralized area near several places of interest including the North Hill Centre, considered a one-stop-shop. It has an active community association that works to meet the needs of residents and resolve their concerns.

About Bankview Real Estate
Bankview, Calgary is built on a steep upward slope with narrow and mature tree-lined streets. There are some original structures in the neighbourhood, from small 600 square foot bungalows to two-storey wood frame homes. Most of these 100-plus-year-old structures have been nicely updated, and most are on 25 foot lots. Some of the older apartment buildings, now 60 years old, contain rental units.
In the 1980s, more condominiums began to appear and because of the sharp grade of the neighbourhood, Bankview real estate includes some unique condominium architecture in the city. Condos in this neighbourhood are priced just under the $1 million mark. Many offer sunny east and north facing picturesque views of downtown Calgary and the Bow River Valley.
