Cool Springs Blvd is the main thoroughfare through what is essentially a mall-centric commercial area just off of I65/Franklin Exit in Williamson County. The mall itself is busy and is comprised of mid to upmarket shops, with surrounding retail establishments including Whole Foods, Target, TJ Maxx and others, and restaurants such as J. Alexanders, Wolfgang Puck Express, local eateries and probably a dozen others. In Cool Springs itself there are high-end apartment complexes on the West Side of I65, and on the East Side gated communities boasting both zero lot-line and larger houses with small yards. The preconceived notion of Cool Springs is that living there would be a pain because of the traffic that dominates the mall area, and that it may likewise be noisy and comprised of cheap or unattractive housing. Not so. With Sony Music and Nissan both housing large offices nearby, there is quite the population of well-paid transplants in the area and it seems that those that are either single, childless or frequent travelers prefer the convenience of having all the shopping and eating out they can stand within arms reach of both their home and their office. I personally once bypassed looking at this area, turning my nose up at it as somewhere that would not have the type of housing I desired, but have in hindsight found that to not at all be the case.
