Hey all,
Just curious if anyone knows the per sq ft rate in the NYC metro area. I'm figuring a job of 7-8 thousand sq ft. Myron, I know you said you were getting 1.50 for smaller jobs. How about the bigger ones?

7-8000 SF of what? 8' walls and lids? 12' walls with 5/8" lids? Cut up apartments, or wide open retail? What finish level? NYC- union labor or illegal immigrants? 1st floor, or 51st floor?

All of these items will affect the pricing- but given those variables, the price per SF could be as low as .95/SF, or as high as $3.00/SF.

Learn a bit of spanish and you can get some excellent hard working labor on the upper east side. You can piece it out too.
Just tell them Ricardo sent you.

Thanks for replying. It looks like we are getting the job so I'll soon know if I was in the correct range for pricing. Again, thanks.
