# Addresses with two house numbers?

 6 The general consensus on addr:* tags now seems to be to put the main number in addr:housenumber and the minor number in addr:unit. In the example above for 25 Maple St Unit 3, we would have the following: ``````addr:housenumber=25 addr:street=Maple Street addr:unit=3 `````` answered 16 Jun '15, 17:48 Peter Dobratz 311●6●8●19 accept rate: 0%
 3 What I do where a building contains multiple apartments is to tag it with addr:housenumber or addr:housename to indicate the address of the block, and then add addr:flatnumber to indicate which apartment numbers exist in the building. So you would have something like: ``````addr:street=Foo Street addr:housenumber=25 addr:flatnumber=1-6 `````` or, if the block is named: ``````addr:street=Bar Street addr:housename=Baz House addr:flatnumber=1-25 `````` I think the wiki also has a tag for specifying how to interpolate the flat numbers if the block only contains odd or even numbers. answered 20 Jan '11, 23:03 TomH ♦♦ 3.3k●8●39●43 accept rate: 20% I'll add the links in my answer instead.

 1 There seems to be many ways to do this in the wild, while searching I've seen: building=entrance + ref=* more than 20 usages around the world, means flat "D" (can't do a search for that addr:flatnumber 50 usages in world, + addr:flatnumber:interpolation=all/even/odd (just used once) But I still think this is a general problem, there exist many places that have only one housenumber or address but include many sub addresses. Unit numbers Entrance numbers Building numbers Tent location Parking numbers Cabin numbers (in hotels) Perhaps something like: ``````addr:subnumber=* title:addr:subnumber=Lot `````` or ``````ref=b-k ref:title=flat/lot/entrance/blabla? `````` permanent link This answer is marked "community wiki". answered 20 Jan '11, 21:44 emj 2.0k●12●35●47 accept rate: 15%
 0 Can't you use something like `addr:housenumber=25/7` for 25 Maple Street Lot 7? The housenumber tag allows alphanumeric characters not just numbers. So you could even write something like `addr:housenumber=25 Lot 7`. I think this solves your problem. answered 20 Jan '11, 20:57 ALE 1.9k●41●57●74 accept rate: 14% I would probably do a separate node for "addr:housenumber=25" and then add tag the lots with addr:housenumber=Lot 7; addr:street=Maplestreet 25 (20 Jan '11, 21:45) emj 2 I think you should not put the number in the addr:street tag because this will cause problems for navigation programs. The might not find the address and / or housenumber. (21 Jan '11, 11:06) ALE makes sense. (22 Jan '11, 09:22) emj
