Tricky one!

For instance, the Reserve Bank of Australia is wholly owned by the
Commonwealth of Australia, but it isn't classified as a Government
Department. It's been tagged as a building=government

> How would you tag the land use of an independent central bank?

I "think" that yes, it probably should / would be? What are the options?
It's certainly not either retail or industrial. Government - not if it's
independent, which really only leaves commercial?

It also wouldn't be tagged as a bank, because it doesn't have accounts &
you can't go in & deposit / withdraw cash, or take out a loan.

So =government if it's government owned; =commercial if it's private; not
tagged as a bank, but named Reserve / Central Bank of Somewhere.
