Franklin's

Explanation:
you could call it a Franklin per square foot.

Or you could say "a hundred bucks," i.e. a hundred bucks a square foot.

agree  Yasutomo Kanazawa: That's what I thought too.
 1 min
-> Thank you Yasutomo.

agree  Tony M: Yes, exactly as in Asker's previous question! The 's' isn't "short for" anything — it is just a plural, making it 'hundreds'' — but informed readers will understand the implicit '...thousands of dollars'.

agree
 3 hrs
-> Thank you Ashutosh.

neutral  Peter Simon: Good answer and link, but expl. "in the thousands of dollars" is wrong. Correctly it's 'in the one-hundred-thousand-dollar range' as the headline answer suggests.
 5 hrs
-> Thank you.

neutral  philgoddard: It means between \$100k and \$110k.
 6 hrs
-> Fine! Thanks. I tried to specifically address briefly "\$100s - \$150s" range (i.e. between \$100,000 and say \$150,000) plus. I did not want to get into a long, complicated discussion to try to make my point.
