Formal housing development in Indonesia is supported by the availability of social facilities to develop social, economy, and culture of residents. Social facilities have an essential role to enhance the social values of residents by providing a space for interaction. This paper aims to examine utilization of social facilities to reinforce social interaction in a neighborhood by comparing the utilization of social facilities at two formal housings, built by the government and a private developer. The analytical method used is quantitative descriptive analysis through Crosstab Analysis. The study presented that the accessibility is the most important factor influencing the use of social facilities. Furthermore, social facilities at a private housing development are more effective to conduct social interaction than at a public housing development. Social facilities at private housing developments have a significant role as spaces for gathering and fostering social relationships among residents. Meanwhile, social interaction among residents at a public housing development is regardless of the use of social facilities due to a sense of community.
