I see a lot of post on here talking about old suburbs like Shaker Heights and King of Prussia. But I'm wondering what about new suburbs. Clean, safe, convenient and sterile is exactly what some people are looking for. Also they're constantly growing, so you can be part of a developing community. Personally two that I like are Peach Tree city GA and Fort Mill SC

Nocatee, FL. Not sure how we can possibly pick the best though...Jax alone has a bunch and they all seem indiscernible. (Julington Creek, Oakleaf, St John, Fleming Island, etc)

Not my cup of tea but I'll add Holly Springs, North Carolina. It's an explosive growth suburb of Raleigh with lots of shiny new houses and infrastructure. In 1990 it was a spec on the map with about 900 people and today it's home to over 33,000 (2016). It will likely hit 40,000 in the next Census since it sits at the south end of the Triangle Expressway for easy commutes to RTP.
Homes there are mostly upscale (trade up - luxury) and the town actually built a new downtown a few years ago. It's all shiny and new.

I wouldn't consider any of these "new" but they are safe, clean, economically progressive suburbs:

Johns Creek, GA
Alpharetta, GA
Frisco, TX
The Woodlands, TX

Peachtree City, Georgia isn't new (been around since the 1950's) but I believe it would check all of your boxes. Johns Creek and Milton (North Atlanta suburbs) ARE new (cut in the last decade or so from unincorporated North Fulton County). Johns Creek has an office core in the form of suburban style office parks (office "campuses" if you would).

Mount Pleasant, SC. Safe, check. Clean, check. Fast growing, check. Plenty of amenities, check. Proximity to 2 beaches and downtown Charleston, check. 6,000 people in 1970. 85,000 today. I wouldn't call it "sterile" though. Homogeneous yes, but not sterile.

This isn't in the sunbelt, but I really like Carmel, Indiana. Too bad I couldn't pick it up and move it to the Atlanta metro...
But actual sunbelt suburbs
1) Round Rock, TX
2) Irvine, CA
3) McKinney, TX (really any suburb in Colin County)
4) Weston, FL
5) The Woodlands, TX
6) Cary, NC
7) Alpharetta, GA
8) Chandler, AZ
Some of those are quite pricy and aren't exactly new, but nonetheless, those are some of the best sunbelt suburbs.

Seeing your post on Mt. Pleasant made me think of I'on and other New Urbanist Communities that have sprung up over the last three decades. SC and FL in particular have acquired many of them.
