Depends, likely not. CHECK LOCAL BUILDING CODE.
Municipalities can ammend and append the NEC to their heart's desire. They may indeed have a requirement for that type of building to be wired in BX. For Example, One local big city requires *any* commercial structure over one story to use BX. Your muni may call out "multiple family dwellings" or some similar restriction.

DIY by unlicensed people is usually not permitted in multifamily dwelling units in most areas that have applicable laws. ESPECIALLY in Connecticut..........IIRC, it was the State of Connecticut that successfully prosecuted and convicted a guy for manslaughter, 10 years or so ago, when a 4 year old boy was killed as a result of him violating 19 code rules when he installed a baseboard heater in a basement. Call your local Building Dept.......you'll find out real quick.
