first thing you want to do is check your local building code to see if condos are required to be handicap accessible. accessibility laws differs by city. for example, here in nyc, condos, apartments, and co-ops are considered commercial property thus need to be handicap accessible. if not required, go ahead and remove the grab bar. if required, here is what we typically do: remove the bar but leave the framing support already in the wall. that way in the future, when needed, a new bar can be easily installed without adding additional framing support. grab bar weight requirement typically 500 lb min and regular sheet-rock wall just doesn't cut it.
