Dead Man’s Flats was developed primarily as a commercial centre. In 1992, a 44-unit condominium development was built.
An Area Structure Plan was completed in 2013 and development is proceeding for a 78 unit residential and light industrial subdivision.
Playground There was a CSA standard playground located in the northern part of the community that was built by the Community Association in 1995. This area was damaged by winter ice flows and then by the spring flood of 2013. A 5 year old playground for 2-5 year olds was donated to the people of Dead Man's Flats by ATB Financial in Calgary and will be placed with 5-12 year olds flood replacement playground equipment further from possible future flooding.
