I'll be installing a new subpanel to accomodate a new central air system. The only location that makes sense to install the subpanle is directly below the existing main panel. Is there any code restrictions that dictate the minimum height (from the ground)that a subpanel can/should be?

There is no minimum. It is just common sense to select a moderate height so most people can use it without either stooping or reaching to far. There is a maximum height but you don't need to worry about this. It goes without saying that there should not be anything in front a panels which will obstruct easy access and work room. If this is the best location or only real feasible one, then install it under the main panel. I am assuming your current panel is about 4 to 5 feet above the floor.
