Our history 

The foundations of KDN Group were formed in the 1960s by brothers Jim and Tony Katheklakis. They developed commercial and residential property in Canberra, with an enduring commitment to family and community, for 55 years. 

Continuing the family tradition, KDN Group was established in 2004 by George D Katheklakis and Tony Katheklakis after the completion of The Waterside Apartments in Belconnen.

The vision for KDN Group remains strong, with the next generation of the KDN family furthering their founders legacy.

Part of Canberra’s community

Unlike others, we are solely Canberra-owned and Canberra-based. We are locally based and operate to global standards. We want the best possible built environments for Canberrans by ensuring our developments are of the highest quality and design.

At heart, we’re Canberrans invested in our community. Our team has a national interest and understanding to complement our extensive local knowledge.  

Our office is centrally located in Canberra’s CBD.

Our vision and values 

Our vision is to develop well designed, healthy and sustainable environments that strengthen Canberra’s envious position as a leading international small city.

We approach our work innovatively, focused on progressive change through original and creative solutions that challenge convention and lead by example.


We look to reduce our impact on the environment through design focused solutions that rely on sensibility and appropriateness to our climatic conditions and our tenants needs.   Our developments are innovative and progressive which is a prerequisite to achieve our sustainability goals.


We are honest and ethical in what we do. We pride ourselves on being trustworthy, reliable and accountable for our actions, fostering a culture of openness and transparency.


Everything we do is of the highest quality whilst considering the task at hand. We aim to provide exceptional value through excellent service, design, and development.


We have a strong sense of community recognisable through our actions to strive for the best possible design and development in the Canberra environment and our involvement in community organisations across Canberra and Australia.


We value all our relationships, being a family-oriented business, ensuring that we maintain, sustain and foster our connections respectfully in our work and personal interactions.
