Don't have a dog in this fight either, but if this had happened several years ago, I would have.

I used to rent a suite at the corner of Taylor and 33. Not the split level *right* on the corner but next door to it. We watched the condos on the opposite side of the street getting built. We were keenly aware of the traffic on Taylor as it seemed every motorcycle or nasty old pickup turned onto Taylor and gunned the engine right in front of our house. It was a key reason we moved away.

However,the traffic on that street isn't due to residential density, but due to people (as one poster admitted to doing) using it as a shortcut. Many people go Taylor-Collison-Ziprick to avoid the threeway stop behind Costco. I don't believe increasing the density on that street would make much of a difference. I'm not against this development now and I wouldn't be if I still lived there. That street needs updating bigtime. It's probably still best known as the street that Mindy Tran, and the man accused of her murder, lived on.
