    Certainly I would say that the REASON for the 2-4 rule still exists.
    Its an apartment building with commercial spaces. The area im speaking of Is a space that any resident can go to freely. It has a small kitchen.

    Then the 210.52 Dwelling Unit requirements do not apply.

    I've seen people sleep out in the woods, in alleys, on the beach, in church, and many other places. NEC does have a definition for dwelling unit and most those I mentioned seldom fit.

    The common areas are not part of any "guest room or suite".

    No requirement for specific receptacle spacing, or even any receptacles at all, but if is a "kitchen", 210.8(B)(2) would apply to any receptacles that are installed.
