Two years ago, the marketing team behind West Midtown’s growing, mixed-use The Interlock reported that demand for the district’s first six townhomes was so insatiable they sold out “almost instantly.”

Twenty-four months and a parade of interest-rate hikes later, it appears to be a different story.

The Interlock’s first two dozen townhomes stand in a row of four buildings today, tucked amongst transformative growth in Home Park and the Marietta Street Artery from projects such as the Star Metals District’s and Interlock’s next phases.

So far, the Monte Hewett project has delivered townhome options with between two and four bedrooms, starting with just shy of 1,900 square feet.

Most of the available units have incurred discounts—including 665 Vidalia Lane, which has now undergone a substantial, $150,000 price slice to $849,900. That buys three bedrooms, three full bathroom, and three half-baths in 2,827 square feet.

The townhome was initially listed for sale at $1.15 million in October, records indicate.

It’s referred to in marketing materials as a “special gem” with high walkability and rooftop patio views across the district and beyond, offering JennAir appliances and a spa-like primary suite. (The property’s 88 Walk Score is certainly a plus.)

Records indicate the property, which carries a monthly HOA fee of $310, was finished in 2022.

Current townhome offerings at The Interlock range from $745,000 (three bedrooms, two and ½ bathrooms in 1,867 square feet) up to $1.15 million (a three-bedroom end unit with 2,827 square feet.)

Other townhomes have seen price adjustments between $25,000 and $50,000 in recent months.

The Interlock's townhomes come with one of “four distinct finish collections,” named the Howell, Interlock, Westside, and West Midtown, each designed to “meet the sophisticated and contemporary tastes of intown buyers,” according to Engel and Völkers Atlanta, which is marketing the project.

Future phases of Interlock’s townhome component have yet to be built on sites across Vidalia Lane.

Eventually, 41 Interlock townhomes will stand in an L-shaped node of six buildings, between the Windsor Interlock apartments and Star Metals Offices, project officials have said.

Elsewhere around the city, Monte Hewett sold out a pocket of townhomes with skyline views in nearby Loring Heights, and the company is building another, less expensive project called The Harman on the flipside of town, where Ormewood Park meets East Atlanta. North of Atlanta, the homebuilder added to residential sections—both townhomes and standalone houses—at Forsyth County’s ever-evolving Halcyon district.
