Welcome to Curbed Cuts, where Curbed SF editor Sally Kuchar shares the top real estate and development news of the week.

SAN FRANCISCO·We've mapped the most expensive homes to recently come onto the market. The cheapest is a 1-bedroom asking $3.5M, and the most expensive is a planned single-family home on Billionaire's Row that's asking $28.95M.

CASTRO—A new boutique residential building called ICON in the Castro revealed itself last week when its scaffolding and protective shroud were removed. We've got pricing, too.

RUSSIAN HILL—Looking to build some very big abodes on a prime lot in Russian Hill? Let us introduce you to the (planned) Wysteria Residences, which are a collection of super high-end residences that haven't been built yet but can be yours for a small sum of unlisted money. Let the bidding war begin!

MID-MARKTET—More housing could soon come to Mid-Market! One of Under Armour's former execs, Scott Plank, has recently acquired the 15,000 square foot lot at 1028 Market Street. Plank retired last year to "pursue his passion for building sustainable urban environments."

SAN FRANCISCO—The average rental rate for a two bedroom is $4,000, but we've found five perfectly fine (and dare we say even adorable in some cases) two bedrooms for less than that.

CIVIC CENTER—The Fox Theater was once San Francisco's splashiest and most glamorous movie theaters, but was torn down in 1963 to make way for an office building and apartments. Many folks were unhappy about the loss, some even believing that a curse was placed on the new building to doom its future.

SAN FRANCISCOThe most expensive property sold this week was a very fancy 2-unit building in Nob Hill. It was listed for $5.995M but received $5.7M.

POTRERO HILL—Potrero Hill's newest development is speeding right along as scheduled. We have photos and details over here.

NOB HILL—Did you know that $3.5M won't even get you the most expensive one bedroom for sale in San Francisco? It's true! But it will get you the second most expensive one bedroom, which is a well-appointed condo at 1001 California.

PACIFIC HEIGHTS—The Traina clan's old abode on Billionaire's Row is up for grabs for $14.5M. The 4-bed, 5.5-bath, 6,000 square foot pad has picturesque views of the Golden Gate Bridge and beyond from nearly every room.
