Architect's rendering.

A cancer researcher turned real-estate investor has filed plans with the BPDA for a 16-unit residential building at 425 Border St., at the corner of Falcon Street.

Through his PhD Homes, LLC, of Brookline, Doug Medvetz is proposing a building in which each unit would have two bedrooms. The building would have 16 parking spaces in a garage accessed via Falcon Street.

Boring, cookie cutter design for more deserving location.

No less boring than a triple decker, but it houses a lot more people.

You can be an internet commenter turned real estate developer and show us all how it is done!

The Soviet era was not a good one for architecture.

It looks better than pretty much everything else within a block. The development across Border St. (and on the water for crying out loud) looks like some of the absolute worst of the 60s or 70s.

Why the developer care since he lives in Brookline and not East Boston? It's ok to build cheap if you don't have to live there!!!
