Buildings with many institutions?

What do you people suggest for tagging a building which has many institutions?
The example I am talking about is a New York building holding several consulates and representations.

Re: Buildings with many institutions?

Such buildings usually have a name. I'd just go with that instead of trying to create a building directory.

I would draw the building as an area (tagged as building=yes, plus name= etc). Then add nodes for the individual amenities / shops etc, in their (approximate) locations in the building.

I have tried this for a shopping mall centralplaza Khon Kaen. I added only larger shops. Mapnik doesn't render all. But the data layer shows them all or better JOSM.

I think this is the right way. Maybe they won't be renderd (remember, don't map for the renderer) but they will come up in search. Also, maybe a better renderer will be made in the future.

I think, the proper way would by "relation", where building is a "site".
You can add releation to each institution.

A site relation models an area which usually contains multiple buildings. This relation type is probably not appropriate here.

Some people use building relations, but I would likely map it like Vclaw - as a building=* outline way with nodes for the institutions placed within that outline.
