People live in those suburban areas because it's usually cheaper, newer, safer, good schools, and more parks.

I would like to be more centrally-located because I hate the commute everyday to my workplace in Tempe from northern Avondale.

But I live in a suburban area because I prefer new developments, and most of all being close to my significant other.

I would never want to live in central anywhere, including Phoenix. The suburban life is the life for me. Judging by growth patterns, its the life style choice for almost everyone who moves here too. Different strokes.
