The idea is to minimize the time and hassle of your fans getting to the arena. Sometimes that means locating downtown. But quite often it doesn't.
In the early 90s, downtown Phoenix was in the best location. But now that has shifted eastward towards Tempe/South Scottsdale. 60, 10, 51, 101, 202 all dump into that area. Ironically, that would have put the proposed Los Arcos site in the perfect location.
