Renderings: Home styles at Forsyth County’s mixed-use Halcyon to echo intown

Designer Monte Hewett Homes has unveiled sketches for the residences it plans to build at Forsyth County’s upcoming mixed-use mini-city Halcyon.

The renderings tease some of the different housing options Halcyon will offer once the 135-acre development opens in March next year. And the styles—especially with the standalone houses that nod to farmhouse esthetics—echo hot intown trends.

Of the 62 residences Monte Hewett will deliver, one half will be townhomes; the rest will be single-family houses.

The townhomes are expected to come in two different floorplans, whereas the standalone options will offer four configurations. All of the designs feature a blend of contemporary and old-school elements, according to a press release.

Prices haven’t been specified.

“Our overall goal with any project is to create a place, not a subdivision,” development reps said in a press release. “We want our homes to weave into the social fabric and existing infrastructure to seamlessly blend into the community, but also to address what people want.”

Complementing Hewett’s work at Halcyon will be nearly 500,000 square feet of retail and office space, as well as two hotels, more than 600 more residential units, and a dine-in movie theater.

Halcyon will also link up with Forsyth’s Beltline-like Big Creek Greenway and will be sprinkled with some 50 acres of its own greenspace.

Construction kicked off in 2016, and the development has filled nearly all of its retail spaces, officials announced last month.
