On Saturday morning, officials of the new Runway Bay in the Town of Porter held a ribbon-cutting for the River Region’s latest housing offering. Located just off of Lower River Road at Dockside Drive, the subdivision includes 23 lots with a small, private access marina located across on the lower river.
“I started this adventure in 2015 when I first approached the owners to buy it,” said Tom Deal of Deal Realty. “Honestly, I’ve never done a development before. I learned a lot along the way.
“It’s a dream of ours, my partners and I, to get this up and running,” said co-owner Chris Guard of Guard Construction and Contracting. “It’s just amazing down there, what they’re going to do.”
