Generic lists of locations in modern areas

I'm working up some tables for post-apocalyptic exploration of pre-apocalypse locations. These are meant to drill down to the types of resources or locations that might be found while exploring; the GM either picks (if it's known already) or rolls randomly. The tables are intended for at least three generations after the apocalypse, with an apocalypse that removed the majority of the population, so that overgrowth and decay might not make it immediately obvious what the region was originally used for or the type of building that is being explored, and no one is likely to remember.

The first determination is what the general region was used for originally:

Developed
Farm Land
Other
Undeveloped

From there, you'd determine what the specific area was that is being explored. I'm thinking:
Residential
Business
Industrial
Special
Other

Special might be research facility, military base, airport, etc. Other would probably include things like open fields for farms and whatnot, as well as quarries, trash dumps, etc.

Then from there the specific building they might be exploring, based on the area, plus possibly the condition.

What I'm looking for is ideas on 1) various types of buildings and 2) any other suggestions for the categories. Note that this is being done for Strands of Fate, so there is a "FATE Fractal" thing going on where the different zones nest within one another. I'm not looking at going any deeper than the actual building (to help determine the types of things that might be found) and I'm not interested in suggestions for an item table (I've found that randomly rolled scavenged item tables in PA games get silly pretty quick).

As a rough starting list for buildings I have. Obviously some of them are dependent on the type of location

Office
Residential housing (single family, apartment, whatever)
Storage
Parking structure
Library
School
Hospital
Armory
Museum
Retail
Hangar
Power plant

You could do interesting things with a prison, sea-port or railway junction.

Get out your D1000 along with a d100. Roll em both and subtract one from your dice roll and then re-roll any result over 1054. Ohh wait. Modern locale #1055 = Native American Reservation.

Get out your D1000 along with a d100. Roll em both and subtract one from your dice roll and then re-roll any result over 1054. Ohh wait. Modern locale #1055 = Native American Reservation.
That's awesome...I can mine that for more generalized ideas. Some of them are very specific, and I'm going to try to align things so that they make sense when generated concurrently. Think random dungeon generation, but instead locations. It's hard to make sense of finding yacht in the middle of downtown next to a library.

Yep, Done. I have a Java App that generates random modern urban encounters. Not so suitable for post-apoc games, but easily adaptable. Send me a pm with a postal address and I'll mail you a copy. You'll find the yacht in the middle of downtown next to the Library in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Used to live there and would hop the water taxi from my hotel for the morning coffee run up to Starbucks. About every homeowner there has a boat dock in addition to a garage.
