The issue with building=stilt_house is that two things are mixed in one key. I would prefer stilts=yes (2945 occurences) + building=* or place=* or highway=* or even landuse=* for a full redidential area.

This probably isn't too far off from many of the larger man_made=pier structures in resort towns, although it lacks the water underneath most of the time. Would man_made=bridge be appropriate for the surrounding area?

I think this is becomming fairly common in some flood prone areas, so dedicated tagging seems like a good idea, both for the usually dry situation, and for buildings that sit over water but don't even have vestigial mooring areas.

The wiki lists building=stilt_house, but this seems overly specific. Whether a building is tagged as being on stilts should be independent of building use IMO. Regardless in this case min_level=1 seems about right to me to denote the absence of a ground floor. <> <>

    add location=overhead on buildings and other objects?
    (not sure can it be applied if entire building starts above ground

    Certainly add also description=* tag with info what is happening here,
    maybe with link to this mailing list thread.

        How do you tag an area, in this case an entire housing
        estate!, that is raised up above ground level?
        (with the usual not mapping from Google ...)

        Just draw the outline of the area & tag it as level=1?

        The main entry is via a bridge:,153.3800556,3a,23.4y,28.84h,87.1t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sBF_8z5ekricuuEFZnUJioQ!2e0!7i13312!8i6656?hl=en
        which is ok, but should all the internal roads also be marked
        as bridges?
