Envelope Based on Compass Direction

I'm wanting to use the envelope function, but with compass directions instead of street sides or object sides.

So basically, it could use one angle for the northern sides of a parcel, a second to the eastern sides, and so on. This would work if the envelope function could use world.north etc., but unfortunately it's limited to using or

I thought perhaps there might be a way to cheat and assign street.front to world.north, in which case the other sides would flow on and use street.left, street.right and street.back for east, west and south respectively.

Does anybody have any suggestions?
