Developer/builder/history

Bankview’s history dates back to 1882. William Nimmons purchased the land the neighbourhood stands on, along with other lands, from the Hudson’s Bay Company. The land was bought for farming and ranching. The Nimmons’ family residence is a heritage building today. Bankview itself was established as a Calgary neighbourhood in 1908, and the community witnessed a significant redesign of the neighbourhood in 1950.
