Illegal settlements are a form of increasing demand for settlements in the capital city of Jakarta triggered d by urbanization. One of them is in Waduk Pluit, North Jakarta. This situation forced government to hold the normalization and relocation towards Rusunawa Muara Baru in 2015 to restore the function of the reservoir and restrain the urban settlement infrastructure. This research is a qualitative study using a humanistic geographical approach as its foundation. This research aims to determine changes in their residential characteristics and their basic needs as well as to identify the new form of adaptations in their livelihood activities after relocation. The results showed that residents who have relocated value the positive physical environment in their new housing but also increase in their basic needs, mainly due to rental fees. This condition causes residents to adapt by having additional jobs. Some residents who didn't have additional jobs, work in the services sector. Otherwise, some residents maintain it with same or different types of business. The business space location determines the type of business, this causes some of them to change the type of business based on market conditions around their business space. They use public space as additional jobs' location.
