Tagging blocks of flats

IÂ’ve got some questions about tagging blocks of flats.

  1. Is there a better way to tag outlines of blocks of flats than building=yes?
  2. Should names of blocks of flats be tagged as name= or addr:housename= ?
  3. Should estates be tagged as POIs with place=locality or as areas with a named landuse=residential?
  1. I usually do this but I would also be interested to know if there’s a better solution.
  2. I tag the block with name. It’s well supported amongst renderers and anything that supports the Karlsruhe schema will probably have to support name anyway.
  3. There’s always place=suburb
