Homes in Bankview are a combination of low, medium and high density housing. Much of the community is comprised of early 1900s construction, but in the southwest part of the neighbourhood, homes constructed in the 1940s and 1950s are common. The 1950s saw a number of apartment buildings constructed in the neighbourhood and some of these are still extant.
Much of early 1900s Bankview real estate was constructed on 50 foot lots and many of these properties still exist. The renovation guidelines for Bankview homes encourage construction that is in keeping with the neighbouring homes. Infill construction is permitted as long as it keeps a low profile and blends in with the community. Conversions that create two dwellings out of a single-family home are supported, as this helps the neighbourhood to increase density without changing the atmosphere.
The Bankview Community Association maintains parks, tennis and basketball courts in the neighbourhood. The commercial areas are mainly along the edges of the community, along the larger thoroughfares, but many people prefer to shop downtown or at the larger Calgary shopping centres.
There are a number of parks in the neighbourhood. The largest of these is 2-acre Bankview Park, which contains a tobogganing hill, children’s playground and open space for casual recreation. There are a number of smaller parks and open spaces scattered throughout the community. A dedicated children’s playground is located on 18A Street.
Bankview real estate was originally ranching and farming land purchased by settlers and the City of Calgary, which divided it into the grid system we see today. The neighbourhood was predominantly a residential area. Many early-1900s homes that stand in Bankview today attest to this. Bankview experienced significant development in 1950, with many apartment buildings being built. Today, the area has a redevelopment plan in effect that encourages building residential real estate that blends with the neighbourhood’s character.
