Numerologically Correct Addresses

So I was finally assigned the addresses for the project. They are 4774 - 4799 Rock Row Drive. They start in the 4700s based on the city grid, but why 25 addresses for a 15 home project?
Because the guy that assigns addresses at the city is obsessed with numerology (what better job for an obsessive numerologist than assigning addresses). He sums each address and if the number is not in accord with his beliefs he wouldn't let us use it. So the project numbers skip in several places. For example we have 4774, 4776, 4778, 4780 and then it skips to 4786. Apparently 21 (the sum of 4 + 7 + 8+ 2) is cursed.
