New affordable housing opportunity
The Town of Banff is developing a new residential complex with 33 dwellings in the heart of downtown Banff to provide below-market, for-purchase housing for eligible Banff residents. Dwellings will be sold by the Banff Housing Corporation. We expect the demand for these homes to exceed the available units.
The Registration of Interest form is now available for The Aster housing development at asterbanff.ca/how-to-purchase.
We’re asking all potential buyers to complete this form so we can gauge early interest and keep you informed about updates. There’s no commitment or cost associated with completing this form.
New project updates newsletter
We’ve also set up a new e-newsletter for all future construction updates on The Aster project. Sign up for email or text updates at banff.ca/notifyme.
If you want to go skating at one of the 2 outdoor rinks, fill in the free registration for the time you want. We’re making sure the rinks don’t exceed capacity and everyone can enjoy the clean mountain air safely. Dress for the weather. Register to skate at the Banff Ave rink or Bear Street rink at banff.ca/active.
