What Louisville Gardens should become — according to you

Let’s play real estate developer for a second.

The Louisville Gardens is a Beaux Arts style building with columns and three stories. Its mezzanine is a bit run down as the title "The Gardens" across the front is missing the "ar" in "Gardens."

Many readers said they’d like the Gardens to reopen as a concert venue.
