Bankview is a neighbourhood in the SW quadrant Calgary, Alberta.

The land was purchased by William Nimmons from the Hudson’s Bay Company in 1882 and after some racnding activity and later sales of lots, the city of Calgary bought the remaining land in 1908. A major redesign in 1950 by the city allowed for higher density apartment buildings.
