We are 10 minutes south of Ballantyne and DH can still make it to work in 45 minutes in the heart of Uptown. He leaves at 8am to get there at 9am and he hasn't been late more than twice in 2.5 years. He leaves around 6:30pm-7pm and it is still about a 45 min. commute home. He goes through Ballantyne.

It really depends on what time you leave. We live all the way down in South Lancaster and hubby works up near 85 & 77. He leaves here by 5:30 am and it takes him 1 hour. Same for the afternoon. He leaves work by 4pm and is home in 1 hour. He avoids 485 & Ballentyne altogether.

I will have a job in Ballentyne area, but I don't really want to live there. Are there areas where singles live, but would be reasonable to commute to Ballentyne? I know NoDa is way too far.... what about other places...? I think it would be going against traffic, but I also know people are headed toward 485 which might cause a problem...

I'm not a bug fan of Ballantyne, but if you're going to be working there and you're interested in mixing with singles, I would suggest that you live there as well. The areas just north of Ballantyne are great, but they're predominantly single family homes wityh families and kids. The townhouses in Ballantyne, just outside of the mail center (Village?) seem to be pretty vibrant. And your commute would be a breeze.
