Just because it's also worth mentioning...
price break down does not include:
power distribution / electrical anything.
sewage / toilets anything.
fire suppression ( mentioned before but worth mentioning again ).
which changes based on what the buildings are zoned for.
As raised before... cost of permits, rezoning, tax costs, etc etc.
Also a concern in NYC... HEATING. How is that being handled?
Electric? Gas? If gas, that's another expense.
