LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Mayor Greg Fischer has announced plans to redevelop Louisville Gardens.

The historic arena on West Muhammad Ali Boulevard has been vacant since 2008. However, Fischer spoke on Friday about reopening it.

The Louisville Metro Government has signed a letter of intent with River City Entertainment Group, LLC to explore transforming the Louisville Gardens building into sound stages for music, film and digital production.

The mayor said the new development will add to an already busy entertainment scene in Louisville.

The end of the entertainment industry here is in our city,” Fischer said. “It’s growing. With this project, we can help elevate this industry to the level of other signature industries that attract more creative and young people to our city and add to our already stellar performing art scene.”

The new development will keep the look of the facade of the old Louisville Armory.
