+1, unless there's a gate which you either need a card/PIN for or need
a resident to allow you in, then it would be access=private. Or if it
could be used as a cut through but theres a sign explicitly forbidding
this (e.g. "No through road") then access=destination. I haven't often
added access tags at all for condo/apartment complexes, but if I do I
probably use access=permissive most often.
