Modern cities in Indonesia grew from a small town, traditional and highly influenced by local values. One of these  influences is a communal culture that looks on the availability of public space as an area to congregate perform activities of social, cultural, economic, and circulates.

 As a developing city, public spaces in Indonesia tend to be inseparable from the circulation space. The public spaces were replaced by built area with commercial values, while the street network is more oriented to vehicles than pedestrians. There were changes in spatial structure in urban areas. The locality and the quality of urban living space were going decrease.

This study will identify the needs of street corridor as a public open space in order to maintain the quality of life and represent the locality. The goal of this research is formulating street corridor design model that is able to maintain its identity while still being able to accommodate a community public activity of social, economic and cultural.
