interesting question; would suspect that the lease is bound by residential laws since that is the present use of the property. I would suggest you consult with a local attorney

While the LL may be willing, I suggest that local codes will not agree to allow you to live in most commercial spaces. In my area, in a retail center, fire codes prohibit it. I suspect there may well be similar codes driving your market area as well. Regardless all tenants have a similar "bundle of rights". And they are impacted by codes or deed restrictions as well.
