``Is Lakeland The Next Collierville?`` - Memphis Business Journal

Unique Neighborhoods

Lakeland has a rich history of beautiful neighborhoods carved into our rolling hills, sitting on the banks of Garner Lake, looking over a beautiful fairway or tucked away on various estate size lots. Existing homes in Lakeland average $322,211 and new home construction averages $419,950 making it one of the highest averages in Shelby County. From French Country styled homes to more traditional stylings, Lakeland has plenty of curb appeal for anyone in the market.


Premium Schools

The Lakeland School System (LSS) is one of the highest performing school districts in Tennessee with its students scoring in the top 2% of all schools in the state. For the last two years in which data were available, Lakeland School System was ranked #1 in the state in both 3-5 English/Language Arts and 3-5 Math. The Tennessee Department of Education named LSS one of only 12 Exemplary School Districts in the state. Come Discover what makes Lakeland School System a premier educational system for its residents and children.


Economic Opportunities

For the first 35 years of Lakeland’s 40 year existence, our city was simply a bedroom community. However, over the last 5 years Lakeland has strategically invested in future growth from both a residential and commercial standpoint. A 3 year project to completely redo our I-40 interchange is now complete. This new interchange brings excellent opportunities for commercial development in what will become the commercial centerpiece of Lakeland. A centerpiece for both our residents and as a destination point for out of town travelers. We also have a growing residential base (12,500 residents) along with a high per capita income to support economic growth.
