For a given area, about same as for residential per visit - though commercial lawn are commonly mowed every week during the growing season except in dry areas, whereas residential might be every 2-3 weeks or even only when called, so an annual contract on a commercial lot would be expected to cost more per year.

Actual cost depends of course on amount to be mowed, heavily on how much needs push mower or weed whacker versus rider gang mower, obstructions like rocks or plantings or signs or elevated sprinkler heads and such, whether they can blow the cuttings from walks and drives and parking areas back onto the lawn or you want them picked up, whether you have on-site dumpster they can dump the cuttings in or you want them hauled away or left in the lawn, etc. Also if the lawn typically has people sitting on it that have to be worked around, or things on it that will hve to be relocated to mow (like benches and chairs) that can raise the cost quite a bit.

You can find some ballpark residential mowing costs in the Lawn and Garden - Yard Work category under Browse Projects, at lower left - but you probably want to google for commercial lawn mowing services in your area, then cross-check on Angies List for any ratings or reviews for them, because I suspect most of the providers on Angies List will not want very large jobs or perhaps will not have bonding and insurance and such which your company may require.

Be sure if you are going to want fertilizing/weed and feeding/spot weed killing that you find a vendor who routinely does that, because many yard care services only do mowing and leaf removal. Ditto if you need periodic shrub/tree trimming and such, in which case a Landscaping Service who does routine property maintenance and mowing might be more along the line of what you need. Ditto if you need snow removal as well - very few lawn care companies do that, many Landscaping companies do that for winter work.
