Bankview Community Background

Bankview is a neighbourhood in the South-West quadrant of the city of Calgary, Alberta. The neighbourhood is bounded by 17th Avenue SW on the north, 26th Avenue SW on the south, 14th Street SW on the east and 19th Street SW on the west. It is one of Calgary’s oldest communities. In 1882, William Nimmons, an English immigrant, purchased a half section of land on present day Bankview to use for ranching and farming. During the economic boom of the 1900s, this land was purchased by the city, subdivided in a traditional grid pattern, and residentially developed. In the 1950s, the community was redesigned to allow for the construction of numerous apartment walk-ups. Bankview offers panoramic views of Calgary’s downtown.
