São João Av. - São Paulo - Brazil

Now it's very decadent, but it still unique:

Avenue de la Grande Armée and Avenue des Champs-Élysées, although they are one and the same.

Les Champs Élysées have axactly the same proportions than the garden of the Château de Versailles (design by André Le Nôtre).

Lisbon's Avenida da Liberdade (Liberty avenue) is quite charming! especially now that most buildings are under refurbishment.

I'm surprised there's not more mention of Odori Avenue in Sapporo:

Does the Corso of Rome fit the bill? Or does an avenue have to be very wide?

Diagonal Sur Avenue - Buenos Aires







Unlike the Diagonal Norte Avenue, the Diagonal Sur avenue almost goes unnoticed for those who visit Buenos Aires. The buildings are noticeably simpler than those of the Diagonal Norte. That’s because they were built a few years later, when the city already entered onto a form of architecture that gave priority to the simplicity and who almost erased the ornaments from the facades (a few years later, it would be reduced even more, just to the functionality). The Diagonal Sur remains unfinished today. It ends at the Belgrano Avenue but it should finish at the 9th of July Avenue (there are plans to extend it). Probably, the most important points on this avenue are the Monument to Julio Roca (the president who almost made Argentina a first-world country on the last decades of the 19th Century), the INDEC Building, the Manzana de las Luces with some of the oldest buildings of the city, and the epic Legislature of Building with its clock tower. Also, at the south end of the avenue is the SOMISA Building, the first example of the modern era of the second half of the 20th century in the city, who used steel as its raw material instead of the reinforced concrete that is so common in Buenos Aires.

The City of New York leads the world in lining grand avenues with luxurious apartments.
