Artists, architects, and planners; history buffs and philosophers; students of the phenomenal ways of being human – they mostly agree that there’s something special about a crossroads. The magnetism of the earth, they point out, is not restricted to what makes compasses point north. Rather, the convergence of human events seems to grant to certain spots on the earth an element that a few call magic. Something happens, and the energy of that event stays stuck to the spot – or vice-versa. Such an energy emanates from the best of the townhomes in Atlanta, a city founded on a crossroads.
Behind these mystical interpretations, there are some practical reasons. Crossroads are where people encountered each other, shared news and intelligence, swapped stories, and rested from the journey. As simple as this seems, it nevertheless became the stuff of legends. Folk tales as ancient as Africa and as recent as the blues guitar are based on the energy of a crossroads. As such, The Interlock lives up to its heritage in a way that seems effortless.
The railroad crossings that gave rise to Atlanta originally were the site and the inspiration for The Interlock. Some are shocked to discover how recently Atlanta was founded, how young a city we really are. It all began with a crossroads, and in many ways, this remains the secret of our success. The energy of this crossroads is embodied in the design of the Monte Hewett townhomes sited alongside The Interlock.
And these fortunate Atlanta townhomes, sited near the rail connections that first linked the South to the world at large, are the latest in a long story of achievements founded on spots where people made efforts that endure. Examples abound in the ancient world, where paying attention to the patterns in the sky just might have been the birth of mathematics. Certainly, people left evidence that standing in a certain spot and looking in a certain direction could be important ways of becoming aware, of knowing what they wanted to know, about weather, crops, and even how to get along with each other. From Stonehenge on the moors of England to oyster shell rings on the sea islands off Georgia, there are spots on the earth that have claimed human attention and given us gifts in return.
Catching the Spirit
Taking its place on the spot where railroads intersected, Interlock became instantly a premier live-work-play neighborhood. It was natural, in a way, that Atlanta builder Monte Hewett chose this as the environment for a collection of townhomes that catches the spirit of the neighborhood full force. Unsurpassed now as a destination for entertainment, dining, shopping, and fun, the townhomes of Interlock by Monte Hewett are the ones that make it just a short walk home. It’s a decision well worth considering.
