Transformations of the urban spatial structure, from sub-area redevelopment to newtown development, results great influences upon existing urban condition and spatial configuration. The purpose of the study is to analyse the effect of the urban spatial configuration of Uijongbu city where experienced changes after newly development of city center and new residential area. The west part of the city where is limited in growth by military bases, ego U.S Army basecamp, were planned and established as the other axis of the city center since mid 1980's. After that new residential area which is located in far east of the city were also developed. Space syntax as a methodology has been adopted to conduct quantitative analysis which is able to interpret differences between sub-areas ; old city center, new city center, new residential area. The results of the analysis are follows ; 1) existing structure of the urban fabric, especially old city center, is sustained and intensified, 2) new city center which is west part of the city has failed to achieve organic spatial connection adjacent to old city center, 3) there is less spatial depecdency relationship between city center and new residential area where is identified as another small self-support city within the city.
