The relevance of the research presented in the article is associated with the need to determine the socio-anthropological factors of the formation of modern urban space. The aim of the study is to determine the possibilities of using the social activity of people as a manifestation of their freedom and responsibility for the formation of the city’s space. The spatial characteristics of the city include the structure of the city, the types of spaces included in it, the hierarchy of urban spaces and subspaces and their connections. Methods of urban space development are primarily determined by production methods and social relations, a complex system of social ties and the influence of different social groups, the role of government and business. As a result of the study, it can be concluded that the development of social activity of city residents, aimed at the formation of urban space, allows one to effectively implement the ideas of citizens, satisfy their needs and, to a certain extent, produce new meanings of the cultural space of the city. It is important to define social activity within the dialectic of freedom and responsibility, which allows residents to become real participants in the development of urban space. The possibility of free participation in the creation of urban spaces, the development and implementation of modern social technologies for such participation (public hearings, polls, city Internet portals, etc.) contribute to the formation of a sense of belonging and responsibility for the city.
