Giza was conceptualized with the aim to further enhance the popularity of alfresco dining in Malaysia. As a pedestrian friendly feature, "Pedestrian Boulevards" are integrated into the layout, creating a strong pedestrian thoroughfare that connects the entire development. These boulevards are protected by a high well-insulated roof cover opened at the sides and ends to facilitate ventilation, further assisted by giant ceiling fans that continuously ensure air movement for better comfort.


The roof is punctuated with skylights, designed to bring in the required amount of daylight to create the right ambience. It is this boulevard that links this development. Shops fronting these boulevards are designed to have their own sit-outs that spill onto the boulevards, creating active frontages that engage passers by, creating a lively and bustling atmosphere. It is this spill over and merger of spaces, the mix of colour,noise and people within these boulevards that is the attraction and vibrancy of this development.


The boulevard has four entrances on four sides, protected by elegant glass canopies that are designed to attract the interest of passing traffic and to provide visual and physical connection to adjacent development to draw in crowd.


The boulevard boasts elegantly expressed steel structure and steel members emphasizing the soaring volumes of space. At night, a different ambience is created by a play of lighting and colours reflected from the ceiling, adding to the visual richness of the space.
