Structural Damage: The major damage caused in the sequence is the destruction of the tiled roof of what appears to be a commercial building. We would easily expect that to cost upwards of $100,000 to repair. He also blew up several walls and dividers that could cost $10-30,000 to fix.
Cars: Assuming the police cars are written off (but suffer no major damage to their internal systems or engines) there's a price-tag of around approx $20,000 per car (times 5). The two compact cars suffer some side-damage but are probably repairable at a cost of around $1500 per car.
Misc damage: Without knowing the relative cost of building materials in Gotham it's hard to say, but I'd imagine something around $20-30,000 would be sufficient to cover the replacement of these items.
