Glendale is only 10 miles from downtown Phoenix. Cities out there arent as centralized as here, so I dont think where the arena is matters. Phoenix area is all sprawl. It also has to be done right (arena community that is).
The arena is on the other side of Glendale from the city. I believe it's closer to 20 miles. On a weeknight, that's probably a 30-40 minute drive if traffic is anywhere near decent (it's Phoenix, so probably not). It's also on the other side of Phoenix from the other three major suburbs (Scottsdale, Tempe, Mesa). Everything I've read has said that the location of the arena is one of the biggest problems out there.
