I live in the Lakeridge area. So here is insight from a resident. For some one like me who commutes a lot its a dream as the freeways converge and its centrally located with the 5, 167 and 405 all coming together so easy to go north or south.
Also close to the airport in n out in an hour for pickups and 40 for drop offs. Bonus its not in the flight path so no noise.
