building=office is used to tag an office building constructed to house offices. A typical office building has one or more office=* objects inside and is frequently located within a commercial area landuse=commercial.
Note that some offices (marked with office=*) may also be located in buildings of other types. For example, a former church building repurposed as an office will be still tagged as building=church, possibly with building:use=* on it.
- building=commercial - A commercial building that may include not only offices but also broad range of other building types - ranging from self-storage warehouses through cinemas to hotels and buildings intended as restaurants. For office buildings building=office is preferable over building=commercial.
- building=retail - A building that primarily houses shops.
