Did you know new ownership has visited a west Little Rock events center gone dark since February 2020?

New owner: Equitrust Life Insurance Co. of Chicago.

NC Little Rock 642 LLC, an affiliate of Guggenheim Retail Real Estate Partners of Frisco, Texas, forfeited the 10,662-SF Noah’s Event Venue at 21 Rahling Circle in lieu of foreclosure.

The event center helped secure a $9.2 million mortgage held by Equitrust. The debt was additionally secured by two other shuttered Noah’s in San Antonio and Lincolnshire, Illinois.

You might recall that the Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization of Noah Corp. deteriorated into a Chapter 7 liquidation in February 2020.

That event crashed the wedding receptions planned by couples across Noah’s footprint of more than 40 projects spread across nearly two dozen states. Fraud litigation remains in play against William Bowser, former CEO of the Lehi, Utah-based venture.
