Sorry I am new to this API. It's not very easy to learn. I've worked with API for 5 years and never seen something so confusing lol.

I'm trying to search a coordinate and find the building around it. So far I can search a coordinate and check if a feature is in it. But what I want to do is if it is not on that coordinate I want to be able to search 20 meter radius to check if it's there. So far my query looks like this. Below code will output the building at that coordinate, which works.

[out:json];
is_in(42.1214989,-88.4187053);
area._[building~"^(industrial|warehouse)$"];
(._;>;);
out geom;

I tried this code and can't get it to work. I tried 100 of different variants. I'm close.

[out:json];
area._[building~"^(industrial|warehouse)$"(around:200,42.1214989,-88.4187053);
(._;>;);
out geom;

way[building~"^(industrial|warehouse)$"](around:200,42.1214989,-88.4187053);
out geom;

Area does not work with around.

._ is the default set from the previous command, so it can't be used in the initial statement.

You were missing a closing square bracket.

I'm also still confused by area/is_in/around/pivot commands. for instance if you search for boundary using your first routine it returns data, but doesn't output them.
