New build costs per square foot?

3 Replies

Hello fellow BPers, 

Would like to know if anyone could comment on the average cost per square foot for new builds with average finishes? 

I like in Austin and looking at some new build opportunities and hope to get a baseline for calculations.

Many thanks in advance,


Hey Tom,

I am an Architect practicing in Charleston, SC but I read a blog called  Bob Borson writes the blog and works in Texas (Dallas I believe). He is a residential Architect and has an excellent post that breaks out various price per S.F. for Residential Construction Costs in urban Texas environments. 

If you are looking for residential costs, that would be a very safe place to start.
