There are some legitimate cases when a street isn’t a part of an address. One common example are small villages in some countries (e.g. Austria, Czechia, Slovakia, Poland), in which there are just a few streets with no names, so there’s no street name to put into the address, and addresses usually look like <Village name> <house number>, e.g. Steindorf 30, Tuchlinek 85, Rohovce 47. Since the part of the address before the house number is not, in fact, a street name, it would be wrong to put it into the addr:street=* tag: we would either need to put the name of the village on all actually unnamed streets in the village, thus violating the ground truth principle, or the software might start complaining there isn’t a street with such a name.

When using addr:place=*, make sure there is a matching place=* object of the same name to keep data consistent. It is required by Nominatim for it to be able to find the addresses using it, see this issue for more details.

Use addr:place instead of addr:street=* for buildings whose number belongs not to a street, but to some other object. It is okay to have both addr:place=* and addr:city=* with the same value on the same object.

  • addr:place=Veshevo + addr:housenumber=1 at house (also you can use addr:city=Veshevo at house simultaneously with addr:place, not instead of addr:place) and name=Veshevo + place=village at polygon and node, related to village
  • addr:place=village Novaya + addr:housenumber=7
  • addr:place=Elagin Island + addr:housenumber=10
  • addr:place=Galerny Island + addr:housenumber=12
  • addr:place=gardening Viktoria + addr:housenumber=2
  • addr:place=gardening Zdorovye + addr:housenumber=3
  • addr:place=Left Bank of River Izhora + addr:housenumber=4
  • addr:place=Bolnichnaya Mointain + addr:housenumber=3
  • addr:place=microdistrict 1 + addr:housenumber=5
  • addr:place=Pavilion of Uritsky + addr:housenumber=6

If number of house belongs to some existing object, we can create a relation and include to it houses with role house and object with role object.

information sign

This tag has a different meaning than addr:suburb=*. Don’t use addr:place=* if the building belongs to a street, it’s useful only for cases when there isn’t a street the house can be meaningfully assigned to, and it is addressed only by the place name and the house number. If you’d like to indicate that the building is a part of a district or a suburb, you need to use addr:suburb=*, not addr:place=*. No object should have addr:place=* and addr:street=* at the same time.
