Niche residential developer MacDonald Egan certainly knows how to throw a nice party.
It can also pick a great venue - which is perhaps unsurprising for a business that specialises in spotting opportunities for 'creative' regeneration schemes in gritty parts of south London.
Last Thursday's bash was held in one of its current 'works in progress', a building site deep in the heart of Southwark. For one night only the former house and commercial building welcomed a jazz ensemble, projectors and bar to become the playpen for a raft of property men and architects. The partygoers included collaborators on other MacDonald Egan projects, such as TP Bennett and Hawkins\Brown. Astragal looks forward to receiving an invite to the next one.
