Not 100% sure there is consensus on how to map it but the topic has come up
before (see here
Example mentioned there is: https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/132932358
There is also a few discussions on the topic:
My approach would probably be to do the following:
- Map the terrace and then use the terracing tool to capture the build
- Use addr:housenumber=* and addr:street=* with addr:street=* using the
terrace's name, not the nearest road.
- possibly look at some of the suggested relations mentioned in the talk
- possibly add the name of the terrace to the terrace outline (similar
to how you can name landuse=residential areas after the housing estate
Interested to hear thoughts from others...
