Victor Homes, which is headed by Moshe Shuster, plans to erect a 21-story condominium apartment building with about 200 units at 340 East 23rd Street.

Construction is expected to star early next year and be completed in the middle of 2007.

Gerner Kronick + Valcarcel, Architects, PC., are designing the project, which is expected to compliment the nearby the very handsome Post Luminaria condominium apartment building that it designed in 2002 for the Clarett Group at 385 First Avenue on the southwest corner of 23rd Street and First Avenue.

Victor Homes's other projects in the city include the attractive, 7-story, Lumiere at 350 West 53rd Street that was also designed by Gerner Kronick + Valcarcel, Architects, PC., which also designed the Opus apartment building at 2770 Broadway.

Apartments at the new, mid-block project will range in size from about 400 to about 2,500 square feet. Michael Shvo is the project's marketing agent.

There are two other large condominium developments underway on East 23rd Street: the J. D. Carlisle Development Corporation is preparing a site on the west side of Third Avenue between 23rd and 24th Streets for a 21-story building with about 292 apartments; and construction is almost finished on the 22-story, mid-block building known as Crossing 23rd at 121 East 23rd Street.
