I get this question regularly from folks looking at condos for sale. The answer is yes and no. Philadelphia city code does not allow gas or open flame bbq grills on any outside balcony of any condo building. And most condo associations will mention that fact in their condo docs.
However….some associations will allow an Electric Grill….just not briquettes or gas grills. I have seen some really cool electric outside grills…the assortment offered at many suppliers is growing in terms of quality and size. So do some looking around…and remember, just because you now live in a Philadelphia high rise condo, you may not have to give up your rights to BBQ!
