Amazon’s New London HQ Comes With An Outdoor Tennis Court

Not happy with your Amazon service? Soon you’ll be able to return more than just the goods you’ve bought, as the company’s new London offices will come with a tennis court on the roof.

Brookfield, the new building’s developer, have released a series of photos designed to show off the 15-storey office block’s “neighbourhood vibe”. (Though they’re not pictured, presumably the vibe will be completed by a pack of kids leathering a football against a garage door somewhere in the atrium.)

In 2016, Amazon will move 5,000 employees into the new building, called Principal Place, which also comes with gardens piazzas and food courts.

Because you can never have enough courts...
