How should I tag houses with double addresses?

In my town (Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan) a lot of houses at crossings have house numbers of both roads, e.g. Yunusaliev 150 is the same house as Koybagarov 53. This has nothing to do with different entrances. At the moment I use the address of the bigger (or longer) road, or I leave the address that is already tagged by someone else.

Should I tag one node of the house with the other address? Or add a single node with building=yes within the house?

IMHO two nodes with the respective address in the building outline. But obviously the comination of one address node plus address tagged on the building would work just as good.

I would add a note pointing out that both addresses are correct.

Ok, thanks. I will add one address to a node and add a note.
