Clareview was originally a small LRT station opening in April 1981 with feeder bus service and was located near 139 Avenue at what is now East Clareview Transit Centre. The station was mainly ground level, with no need to go down stairs and back up to platform level. The exterior was a beige color while the shelters on the platform were green. The convenience kiosk also continues to operate today.
A new station began construction in the new millennium, incorporating an upgraded LRT station, as well as a bus terminal on the west side. The new additions went into service on March 4, 2001, with the official opening occurring on September 6 of the same year. Cookies as well as buttons were given out to commuters using the station that day.
The analog clock towers on both sides were replaced on January 31, 2007. Clareview was the first station to have this replacement done by the same local company that installed the original clocks, Blanchett Neon. The new LED clocks are manufactured by Trans-Lux Corporation and display both the time and temperature.
Condo developments have been established on both sides of Clareview Transit Centre. Initially two larger complexes were built on the east side, followed by condos being built on the west side along Clareview Station Drive.
