The Jakarta Old-City Area is a geographical spatial unit that has been appointed as an urban heritage of Jakarta. This study discusses the application of urban heritage management in Jakarta Old-City Area. This is related to the fact that Jakarta Old-City Area is used for many activities, including conservation activities as a heritage area, so its management becomes crucial to notice. This study uses a post-positivist approach in which the theory of urban heritage management becomes the analytical basis of research findings. The data were obtained from in-depth interviews, observation, and literature study. The result of the study shows that heritage management in Jakarta Old-City Area has not been optimal since the regulation system, community engagement, technical and financial managements are not integrated and still contain problems in each dimension. In the case of regulatory systems, the absence of regulations that specifically regulate the management of the area becomes the most important issue. Meanwhile, the lack of community empowerment, not based on community needs and characteristics, becomes a problem in terms of community engagement. For technical management, the control of the TSP and TACB to determine the outcome of efforts to maintain the value and characteristics of the Jakarta Old City as a heritage area is still not strong; in addition, the financial management, in terms of the existing financing alternatives, has not yet accommodated the local economy and the management activities of the area itself.
