With the opening of its last remaining buildings and a new lakefront park, Town Center in Westhaven is officially complete.

The master-planned community was founded 15 years ago and is home to a number of single-family residences, retail, offices and restaurants. Developers marked the build-out of the area with a celebratory event and the dedication of the area's new lakefront park, Magli Green.

According to Southern Land Co. founder and CEO Tim Downey, the park was named for his longtime friend, Boyce Magli, who was an early believer in Westhaven.

“The park, to me, is the crown jewel of the Town Center and the perfect way to pay tribute to Boyce Magli and his family, who dreamed of what was possible for this land many years ago,” Downey said in a release. “Boyce had the idea to assemble this land and put together a master plan to transform it into something special and magical. He believed it could be a place where beauty and the outdoors are treasured and where community and civic pride are evident around every corner. Westhaven embodies all of this and so much more.”

While many businesses have called Westhaven home for years, most recently the community has added Coaltown Pizza & Public House—which opened in early April—resident fitness facility FIT2 and a new office for Westhaven Realty.


The park will be used for events, concerts, farmers markets and other neighborhood programing, according to Southern Land Co.
