U.S. office construction costs by select city 2018 For prime offices, New York had one of the highest construction costs in the United States, averaging about 500 U.S. dollars per square foot. For example, a business park office cost about 3,045 U.S. dollars per square meter in New York City. New York City also has some of the tallest skyscrapers in the United States, including the 541-meter One World Trade Center building. Location and topography have a big impact on construction costs, for example, earthquake-prone zones have more stringent building requirements which will affect cost of materials, supplies, and labor. Increased interest in sustainability has also prompted sustainable certification across the country, most noticeably as LEED-registered offices.
U.S. office construction

Office construction has decreased slightly in the U.S. due to an increasingly mobile workforce and focus on efficient floorplans. The United States is projected to put 75.9 billion U.S. dollars worth of new office construction in place in 2022. The U.S. construction market is currently experiencing a shortage of skilled labor, which has impacted the speed at which the industry is growing.
