PUTRAJAYA BOULEVARD


The Putrajaya Boulevard has been designed to be one of the distinctive features of Putrajaya. 100m wide and 4 km long, the Boulevard forms the central spine linking the five core precincts of Putrajaya. The expansive Boulevard is embellished by four dataran or squares - Dataran Wawasan, Dataran Rakyat, Dataran Putrajaya and Dataran Gemilang.

The Putrajaya Boulevard could well represent the continuum of Malaysia history since Merdeka. The design and landscaping of the Boulevard celebrate the Malaysian 'Melting Pot' where the nation's cultures of its diverse population are blended into a rich Malaysian heritage.

The Boulevard paving is inspired by the patterned of the songket, and the street furniture by traditional clay pots.

It is designed for ceremonial parades such as the Merdeka Parade starting from Dataran Rakyat and dispersing at Dataran

Are all of those buildings actually on the avenue, or around the vicinity of the avenue?

Or maybe you don't want to find it.



















These buildings are not exceptions, take a look by yourself on Google SV.

It is homogenious. In general I think that's the quality of European cities.

It's not uniform though - it's very mixed in architecture and dating. The thing that is constant is the street profile (building height, positioning, street layout)

Philadelphia's Benjamin Franklin Parkway

Although Philadelphia has several broad tree lined avenues and boulevards, to me the most beautiful is the Benjamin Franklin Parkway - the broad boulevard that links our 19th Century City Hall with our neo-classical world famous Art Museum looking majestic on it's hill.

There are hundreds of trees planted in straight lines in the formal manner, several large outstanding fountains and monuments, and the flags of every country fly on either side of "The Parkway" as it is locally called.

'The Mall' in London is really lovely.

Stretches all the way from Trafalgar Square to Admiralty Arch and right up to the front of Buckingham Palace.

It's not considered a boulevard! For some reason London lacks those type of streets.

My top list:
1 Champs Elysees (Paris)
2 Ringstraße (Vienna)
3 Unter den Linden (Berlin)

I was under the impression that the thread title was avenue not boulevard, in which case The Mall is very much an avenue.

Your right! XD What was I thinking? Maybe because all people here were naming Champs Elysees, which is most of all known as a boulevard.

Some of the avenues people are posting are really fugly. Panama City? Really? I wouldn`t even put that in the top 100.

Same with Sao Paulo`s.

So far, my three favorites are Champs-Élysées, Diagonal Norte in BA and the avenue from Barcelona.
