The availability of land restrains the provision of open public space, and the lack of open public space in residential areas will in turn tend to produce ‘spaces’ for social interactions. This phenomenon ocuurs in Kelurahan Petamburan, Kecamatan Tanah Abang, Central Jakarta. Several research questions need to be raised, are: (1) to what extent the influencing factors play the role in shaping the social interaction ‘spaces’?; (2) what are the characteristics of social interaction ‘spaces’ in the high density residential area of Kelurahan Petamburan, Kecamatan Tanah Abang, Central Jakarta? This research is aimed at assessing the factors determining the shape of social  interaction ‘spaces’ and the characteristics of social interaction ‘spaces’ in Kelurahan Petamburan.
