It's Friday afternoon, and that means it's time to look back on the week that was at our sister site and friendly neighborhood blog, Curbed SF.
1) Noe Valley: The big news of the day—the entire week, even—on the real estate front comes from 1039 Noe Street, the house long thought to be the future of home of one Jake Gyllenhaal. Sadly for all parties involved, the Gyllenhaal rumors never came to fruition; rather, a pair Google employees took the spot.
2) Tinseltown Encore: Speaking of movie stars and such, Gus Van Sant's Harvey Milk film, starring Sean Penn, has been braving the rain and begun prepping the sets around town. Much of the Castro, from theaters to bars, is getting a '70s-era makeover.
3) The Castro: As you note the seamless segues at work here, a neighborhood controversy is brewing at the Douglass Steps, where a family of four wants to add a story to their tiny home. The problem? A taller building would block some big views; hence, neighbors are up in arms ... up to here.
