No- that would contradict what "local" is supposed to be (i.e., physically located near there).

Ouch!
Then:

Any hope to local results to be off the regular Google search and back to Google site maps only?

Seems to me like Google is installing those on regular search but perhaps they change their mind and come back to show it only in Google maps?

Google is displaying "local" results to push down organic listings and increase exposure to both organic ads and google maps ads. As such I'm doubtful they'll change their minds without some other better opportunity at their doorstep.

@silverbytes You can get the address on rent for the local area where you want your Google listing to be, if you think that would be profit making move.
