The research topic is about urban revitalization in one heritage area in the Semarang Municipality. The Old City is the biggest heritage area in Semarang. The Semarang Municipal government has been aware to the Old City’s potential in this tourism affair. It has been working on the Old City’s revitalization and development with improving the Old City’s environment and infrastructure. However in fact, what government has done is less sufficient to overcome flood issue and provide adequate infrastructure. Meanwhile, the private sector has taken initiative for upgrading its building. From this situation, the researcher sets the research objectives to firstly identify and analyse private sector involvement in the Old City revitalization and development, and secondly to investigate stimulating potential private sector initiative in the Old Cityscape development. To obtain the objectives, the researcher formulated two research questions that are including the extent of private sector initiatives to the Old City revitalization and development project and how to stimulate the private sector to involve in the project. The research is an exploratory research which investigates management and development of the Old City as a heritage area in the Semarang Municipality. This research applies inductive approach starting from specific observation to broader generalizations and theories. By the end of the research, the researcher came across the conclusions that private sectors are actually interested in developing their business in the Old Cityscape; only that until this research was conducted, they prefer to wait for the government’s initiatives in improving the infrastructure and the Old City’s related policies. Key words: private sector, government, involvement, the Old city, heritage revitalization
