Amazon Leases Entire NYC Building

Amazon to Lease Entire Manhattan Building, Hinting at Retail Ambitions

Amazon.com agreed to lease 470,000 square feet of space in midtown Manhattan from Vornado Realty Trust, including a site people familiar with the matter say will serve as a same-day shipping hub, warehouse and the company’s first customer-facing brick-and-mortar location.

The Seattle e-commerce giant has agreed to lease the space for 17 years, according to a statement from Vornado Thursday. The Wall Street Journal last month reported Amazon’s plans for the brick-and-mortar location, on one of Manhattan’s busiest commercial streets.

Apparently Amazon’s ambitions are far grander than a mere pop-up store for the holidays.

I wonder how soon there will be Amazon delivery bicycles zooming around Manhattan?
