Amazon on the hunt for more locker locations in Seattle

Amazon.com is searching for more sites for its new Amazon Lockers in Seattle, expanding beyond its initial testing of the new delivery system.

Agents with the Jones Lang LaSalle real estate firm this afternoon issued a message to real estate brokers on behalf of Amazon, saying that the company is looking for potential sites to host the lockers — where Amazon customers can have their packages shipped if they aren’t able to take delivery at home or work.

“For retailers as well as building owners, the lockers generate foot traffic as customers visit to pick-up deliveries,” reads the message. “Amazon lockers are an attractive amenity for employees and residents of commercial buildings, Amazon will cover installation and maintenance costs, as well as pay a monthly fee to the host.”

The message notes that the lockers can be placed inside or outside, need to be accessible for deliveries, and require an electrical and data connection, which Amazon will install if needed.

Amazon, which has yet to publicly announce the Amazon Lockers project, initially rolled out the lockers at eight locations in the Seattle region and eight in New York City, in addition to sites in London.
