Health officials say It's up to a building owner or manager to decide if a building is non-smoking or smoking. If the building is a smoking building each tenant can smoke in their own individual unit. They can also smoke on their balcony just as long as they aren't less than 20 feet away from a public place like a mail room, courtyard or hallway.
