Re: Apartment Building numbers at a single address

And, of course, the same issue with Mobile Home communities, etc. One address for the whole community and each mobile home has a lot# or space#, private driveway, etc. Wish there was at least a unit,suite,lot, etc field in the place address form...

Example

A quick thought. If all the apt's or condos, and maybe commercial strip malls that share a common address. Add a box to check next to the address field, which when checked would allow the editor the ability to add multiple unit, suite, or building numbers. A save would then stack them, and the editor could them position and label similar to the places, even add photos? Positioning commercial addresses would allow the editor to add specifics to the business. As far as Apts, condos, etc. Forget about the 100's of stacked addresses that really cause issues for addressing because of the odd / even issues. And really can't be placed where they belong in some cases. If your apt address is 732 in a complex of 10 apt buildings with a common address, then more than likely its located at bldg #7 or #700. Complexes like this have a common mail box system so Mail carriers really dump mail at one stop in newer complexes. Any emergency vehicles etc will respond to a bldg number and approach accordingly.

Just a thought

If I may.

Why not map each building as an area, then, give it the category of Other and place the buildings number/letter in the name block. This will display in the app and help navigate a person to the correct location.

It was just to test it out in AZ for the Super Bowl. Only a few of the lane numbers would show up. I'm trying to see what the size limit is for being able to display all areas. More to test. You can do it too. Just find a location that isn't popular, a small town, and test there. I'm going to see what I can come up with.

These are the lanes that I mapped. I made the area to go from one side of the parking to the other. So, two cars wide and it showed on the app. But I also made it the entire length of that lane.

Don't forget that place areas will not render a tile update. I adjusted the PLR just north of the area to trigger a tile update and hopefully get it to render in a few days.

Is there a public source of information showing address locations of apartment buildings? Most apartment complexes don't publish a map of addresses or building numbers.

On the few occasions I called the management office requesting this information (explaining the purpose of my call, I get the equivalent of "blank stares" coming from the other end of the line.

In response to UR's I've suggested that the OR could submit a report at several building entrances to populate Waze's database.

I understood your original post and agree with your suggestion. I was just lamenting the lack of available address data required to implement it (and hoping someone would chime in with a source).

I've read this thread with great interest as Hawaii has a development philosophy of using neighborhood areas zoned as single dwelling apartment "buildings". They all have the same street address but individual unit numbers to identify, much like trailer parks. I've jumped in here because one very large area of O'ahu has developed quite quickly and I can only surmise that I will be getting more UR's about not being able to navigate to individual residences.
Anyhoo...
Did anybody find a solution?

This would be completely routable, without the need to input the name of the park.. just the space number and street/city

Does this work? If so, what are the PR's named?

One possibility: I've noted several large apartment complexes in my city have the parking lot roads marked at "private road" if it is a gated community. And I can't count the times I would have been grateful to know where building 23 was, especially at night when the building numbers are hard to see. If "parking lot road" and "private road" had something similar to "house numbers" that public roads do, to allow entering the "building number" then problem solved.

Example of private roads:
