There is a web-site called that can give you a very good idea, I am a real estate appraiser and I use it. The fact is the question you ask has no definate answer and anyone who gave an answer to such a broad question without asking about the quality level and the size of the building etc... would be guessing. I think you'll be very glad you found the web site I have provided.

150-200/sf depending upon GC and of course finishes. That number can easily go up if you're really decking it out with amenities...
