Are public buildings acceptable?
Can you give us specific examples of what you're wanting to know about?
Depends on the building.
Buildings like labor unions.
Or notary's office.
For those 2 examples - No - not eligible.
If it is a union hall and they hold regular meets or events, then they would be eligible. But an office, like the notary would not meet the eligibility criteria.
A building is eligible if it's architecturally unique.
City halls and places that connect us can be valid.
"Common office building" is not a valid criteria.
must be historical or something interesting not any random building.
Office buildings of general public organizations are not covered.
They do not meet the requirements for "exercise", "exploration", and "exchange". Even if it is a public organization, it is the same as a general company.
Also, the phrase "hold an event" is a bit ambiguous. Even in ineligible facilities (e.g., a police station or fire station), the owner may hold a meeting (a kind of event) with people who request to attend, but it is somewhat unreasonable to say that this satisfies the condition.
In general, the owner rents out halls and meeting rooms in the facility to the general public. It would be more appropriate to think of this as a case where the general public can freely use the facility.
