There are two noteworthy triple decker apartment houses built by Erick Kaller at 146 and 148 Eastern Avenue in Worcester, Massachusetts. Both were built in 1894 in a Queen Anne style, and were nearly identical, with projecting polygonal bay windows, and a single-story porch sheltering the entrance. The principal difference between the two is that 148 Eastern has flared siding skirts below its projecting bay windows. Both have lost some of their styling due to subsequent exterior alterations, including the application of modern siding. (see photos) Erick Kaller was a worker in a local wire factory, and lived at #146. Most of the tenants were Scandinavian immigrants.

Both buildings were listed separately on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.
