One of Calgary’s oldest communities, Bankview is one of a number of Calgary’s inner city neighborhoods. This neighborhood comprises mainly of single-family homes, high-density apartments, townhouses, condos, and an increasing number of more recently built luxury homes and infills.
As a long-standing community, Bankview is well established, with lots of trees, lovely parks, and green spaces for relaxation. This South West community is situated in a prime location that enjoys proximity to both Downtown Calgary and the University of Calgary. This location is west of 14th Street and south of 17th Avenue.
Bankview is located on the outskirts of the area popularly known as the Beltline, close enough to enjoy all it offers and far enough to stay away from the hustle and bustle. This small community offers a diverse range of real estate styles. An old community, some of its homes date back to the early 1900’s. However, many of these have been torn down and replaced with modern luxury homes (townhouses and condominiums), while others have been totally refurbished.
Single-family homes are fairly scarce in this community, as much of the community has been developed into condos and infills. If you are looking at Bankview real estate contact Sali Homes to view Bankview Homes and Bankview Condos for sale.
Thanks to its prime location, Bankview is just a few minutes away from shopping facilities and the City Center. A quick drive to Downtown Calgary will bring you to a variety of local stores and restaurants.
