Basement Entry Door - via new construction or existing foundation

Assuming nothing unusual: does anyone have an idea which is more cost effective: adding a door through an existing foundation (going through concrete sidewalk, dirt and foundation using current window of a 1939 two story brick colonial) or adding a door with new construction (foundation wall only to be 4-5 high). Let me know. Thanks.
