Call and ask them.
There's no legal issues involved. It's like borrowing your neighbor's lawnmower. They will either say yes or no. It's their decision. If they say yes you need to kindly ask them to sign a location release form. And if they say no you have to decide if you're going to be sneaky about it and do it anyway. Like Carruth did for other shots.

Otherwise, you should get advice from a locations manager or perhaps a city permit office.

Getting advice from a locations manager is a good idea and worth considering. In certain cities the city permit office would not know how to help you if you asked them about using property for your film. Take for example the small town where I was raised, where the only camera seen in public is a rather large VHS-C camera bolted to the top of a motor cycle helmet to document the senior citizens' trek across town.

You definitely do not need a permit from the city to film on private property. You only need a city permit, in some cases, to film on public property.
