The town center off Highway 96 west of downtown Franklin is home to more than 30 businesses and service firms. Its Magli Green element is named after the late real estate executive Boyce Magli, a longtime friend of Southern Land President and CEO Tim Downey, and will be open to the public and be able to host concerts, special events and other programming.

All in one place: Westhaven completes its town center

Katie Britt isn’t surprised when she hears a customer in her Westhaven sweet shop say the words “exhausted parent.” They could be describing how they feel, but more likely they’re ordering one her specialty ice creams.

Exhausted Parent is one of the shop’s top-selling flavors, “very fitting for the Westhaven community,” said Britt, who owns Sweethaven.

The shop is one of more than 30 businesses and services located in the master-planned community’s bustling Town Center mixed-use district, which was among the first of its kind in a Williamson County neighborhood. Others have embraced the idea, including Burkitt Commons near Nolensville and Tollgate Village in Thompson’s Station.
