    11th story condo, need creative way to vent range hood, don't want recirculating

    Hello,
    Live in an 11th story condo, HOA has strict policy against cutting new holes into outside of the building. I currently have a dryer vent with fairly easy access to where i would like to put the vented range hood. I know it is a very bad idea for them to share same pipe. But would it be bad for them to maybe come together behind wall where they exit? I do have access to the dryer vent on exterior of building via a balcony. Anyone have another idea? I am desperately trying to avoid a recirculating range hood. Thank you in advance for the help. Please ask any questions, I will check thread often tonight.

    unless you can go through a roof, your stuck with a recirculating.

    How large is the combined Bathroom Exhaust for building or local area/ segment (50 - 100 condos? ) ?

    Each bathroom has it's own vent box and the dryer also has it's own vent box. All vent to exterior walls of my condo. I have 3 floors above me so roof is out of question.

    That's obviously different than the normal design I am accustomed to.

    Building was built in 1912 and was remodeled in 2008 for condos. Reason I can't make new hole in exterior wall in historic society.
