PENANG
G Tower at Kelawai Road.

I like this a lot!
Simple, cheap, practical; no need fancy design but easy to maintain.
Big trees, wide lawn, not so wide of lane width make it pedestrian friendly, wide sidewalk with disability and universal design.
Further, no ugly, expensive and inconvenient fence along the sidewalk!!

However, the zebra-crossing road marking is so ugly... Why they never learn from other cities with better road marking and art sense... Maybe Singapore...









BETTER DESIGN of ROAD MARKING

A very dated article, but I think one that bears posting.

Firm transforms KL alley into appealing public space, eyes more

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 25 — One of Kuala Lumpur’s historic back lanes has been beautified by urban rejuvenation outfit Think City, which said it plans to extend the project to other parts of the city.

Lorong Bandar 13, a 100m alley at Jalan Hang Kasturi near the iconic Central Market, was transformed by Think City into a well-lit and pedestrian-friendly route, which includes public spaces for eating and relaxation.

The transformation cost RM 20,000 and took just over a month with the help of volunteers.



Programme Director, Neil Khor, DBKL Director of Project Implementation & Building Maintenance, Mohd Sahak Surip (left) and his deputy, Sharifah Junidah Syed Omar are pictured during the launch of Think City’s Demonstrative Laneway Improvement Programme at Jalan Hang Kasturi in Kuala Lumpur, October 25, 2017. — Picture by Yusof Mat Isa

It is currently on display for public feedback before Think City replicates the efforts in at least six other similar lanes in the city.

The pilot project was launched today in conjunction of the Kuala Lumpur Design Month.

Think City programme director Neil Khor said that it is important to upgrade back lanes as these were designed more than a century ago for “functional purposes”.

“This project is aimed at increasing the functionality of back lanes. They are typically treated in a manner that tends to allow for inappropriate behaviour to take place,” Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) project implementation and building maintenance department director Mohd Sarak Surip said.

The display is open for public scrutiny for the next two weeks.

Responses will be taken into account when shaping the final design for the path, which will then be featured at the World Urban Forum in February 2018.

Think City is a subsidiary of national sovereign wealth fund Khazanah Nasional Berhad, and was founded in 2009 to rejuvenate the Unesco heritage core of George Town.

Think City has since expanded to Butterworth, Kuala Lumpur, and Johor Baru.

Dated, but still worth mentioning.

Nine historical KL laneways to get facelift



Permanent laneway improvements for Lorong Bandar 13 are expected to be completed by September 2018. — Picture by Ham Abu Bakar


KUALA LUMPUR, June 27 — Nine laneways in downtown Kuala Lumpur will be rejuvenated as part of a RM300,000 revamping programme by the KL City Hall (DBKL) and Think City.

The collaboration will look into upgrading historical alleys by creating a safe, functional and attractive space for local stakeholders and pedestrians.

The selected laneways are Lorong Bandar 13, Lorong Lebuh Ampang, Lorong Hang Lekiu, Lorong Tun HS Lee South, Lorong Yap Ah Loy, Lorong Pudu, Lorong Tun Tan Cheng Lock and Lorong Hang Kasturi South.

Think City’s Programme Director for Kuala Lumpur and Johor Baru Neil Khor said the programme, which began at Lorong Bandar 13 last September, saw a 40 per cent increase in the use of the laneway by commercial workers.

“The laneways were selected based on the current condition of the space, connectivity and potential to improve existing use by local stakeholders.

“This is ultimately to enhance the vibrancy of Kuala Lumpur through functional and creative spaces that facilitate pedestrian traffic, showcase good, environmentally-friendly practices and deter indecent behaviour through design,” he said at the groundbreaking ceremony for Lorong Bandar 13, here.

The demonstrative Ianeway improvement project for Lorong Bandar 13, done in a temporary pop-up format, took approximately six weeks from concept to completion.

Khor said the permanent laneway improvements for Lorong Bandar 13 are expected to be completed in October 2018, while the entire project is expected to end in 2020.

He said the laneways are the key arteries for pedestrians to connect with the main roads; therefore, the upgrades would improve connectivity for road users in downtown KL.

“We want to improve the utilities and management of the laneways this is a sort of social programme to get the local communities to work with us.

“To kickstart the programme, we initially undertook site observation and analysis as well as data collection with local stakeholders.

“By understanding the space, its uses and the people patronising it, we gained a deeper appreciation of what the community wanted,” said Khor.

Khor said the cost included work on underground structures and pipes to make sure the laneways were safe for public use, while at the same time, involving planning that retained the historical element of the laneways.

Meanwhile, Bukit Bintang MP Fong Kui Lun who officiated the ground-breaking ceremony said the sustainable city environment would boost tourism for Kuala Lumpur.

Also present was DBKL project management executive director Datuk Mahadi Che Ngah.
