Amazon Data Services Inc. this month purchased properties in Grafton, Shrewsbury and Westborough for a total of $26.7 million from a Boston-based financial services company, according to the Worcester District Registry of Deeds.

The company purchased a 1.8-acre property at 8 Centennial Drive in Grafton for $15.1 million from State Street Corp. The property includes a 153,193-square-foot building across the Shrewsbury town line, according to the Grafton Assessors Office.

Assistant Town Manager Kristen Las said that Amazon has not made the town of Shrewsbury aware of any of Amazon's development plans for the property.

In Westborough, Amazon purchased properties at 600 and 800 Friberg Parkway for $11.6 million, also from State Street Corp.

The property at 600 Friberg Parkway is listed to be at 11.12 acres and includes a 99,160-square-foot building, according to the Westborough Assessors Office.

The abutting property at 800 Friberg Parkway is a lot that is listed at 8.27 acres.

Amazon has not disclosed to the town what their development plans are for the properties, according to the Community Development Director Fred Lonardo.

He said that no development proposals have been submitted by Amazon as of yet.

In December, Amazon purchased a 93-acre lot in Westborough for $65 million, with the goal of building a delivery station. That lot, at 4400 Computer Drive, is less than a mile from the newly acquired properties in Westborough.

Amazon spokespeople did not immediately respond to inquiries about the recent purchases.

State Street Corp. had owned the property in Grafton since 2001 and acquired the properties in Westborough in 1992.
