I remember years ago one minister made a comment about the lack of attractive storefronts lining the streets in KL and too many shops are car workshops.
why would anyone want to walk in 30 degrees heat

Exactly. And places like Hong Kong, Tokyo and Shanghai can get very hot in summer - even hotter than KL. And yet there are loads of pedestrians walking the streets.

If there are nice shady trees lining the streets with lots of beautiful, interesting storefronts and cafes, it can be even be quite pleasant.

If the environment is nice and done up nicely , lots of people would walk in the heat. Especially at night or if there are nice shady trees. Have you been to places like Damansara Uptown, SS2 or SS15? Jalan Alor? Bintang Walk? Or even the new River of Life? Tons of people walking. It makes the streets vibrant and full of life.

probably because driving into these cities are expensive and inconvinience which is not exactly the case for KL.

since driving is still the major "entry point" for building, most area are relegated for cars usage putting a parking and access road in between the pedestrian walkways and main roads making the walking infrastructure pretty meeh. i mean who want to walk in between the access road and main road underneath the hot sun.

For whatever reason, those seem to be the cleanest looking form jumps I've seen in recent memory. Or maybe that the photos are just closer than normal. Good daylight? Brighter concrete? Not sure.
