Building with multiple shops, vacant and not

Hello,

I am unsure on how you would like to label a building that contains multiple shops. This is very common in the US and so I have to presume this has been asked before, but I don’t seem to find it anywhere.

For example here is a building on OSM and in-person:


With single nodes, it looks like the 2 shops span the entire building, but in actuality there are 4 shops, just 2 lots are vacant.

Now, here is where I changed the building spacing to separate each shop to how they are spaced out in real life:

My issue is: this makes it look like there are now multiple buildings when it is just a single building split up. How should I go about separating them? If single point nodes are what should be done, how can it be denoted that the building contains vacant areas?

Thanks.
