MKN primarily develops properties in its north Dublin heartland. The company is headquartered in Clontarf.

At the end of 2017, its accounts noted that it had assets of €54m and liabilities of €8.6m.

The firm is 50pc-owned by Sean McKeon, who runs the business with his sons Brian and John.

In Killester, the company is planning to build 79 residential units on a 2.4-acre site.

In March this year, MKN acquired a site extending over almost one acre on the East Wall Road in Dublin. It was previously the site of the Canavan Ford and Seat showroom, which has relocated. The site had been offered for sale with a €6m price tag.

A study of the site by the seller had determined that it could accommodate 9,000 sq m of commercial space, along with 101 apartments.

The McKeons also co-own the Omni Park Shopping Centre in Santry, while MKN is building an office block on Pembroke Row in Dublin city centre.
