We've found it's only reasonable if the force is less than 3,000 # or so for Hem-Fir construction using 16d nails. You just need to make sure you have a load path from the sheathing from the alt. wall to the studs that have a hold-down. Otherwise, sometimes it's cheaper just to add the add'l hold-down. It's also easier to verify the construction was performed correctly if you have the two hd's rather than the one.

We have typically always used separate holdowns for shear walls in each direction at corners. Is there a way to arrange studs at a corner to use only one holdown?
