The conversation and speculation continues about the changing complexion of Lakewood and East Dallas.

A Thursday article — published at Candy’, a Dallas real estate news site — comes from Susan Arledge, CEO of Arledge Partners Real Estate Group, who grew up in Lakewood.

In it, she focuses on the growing population of millennials, the 24- to 35-year-old demographic, expected to move into the area and influence the shape of housing and retail in the community.

Her concluding paragraph — “you want hardware stores handy, tasty small restaurants and a great pizza place, and a grocery store whose shelves are stocked with everything you could possibly need. Lakewood fits the bill.” — reads like a promotional tag for Live Local East Dallas, in a good way, and sums up why I can live within a 5-mile radius of my house with no problem whatsoever.
