Good Questions: Entryway Mailbox Suggestions?

Dear AT,

I'm looking for some good-looking mailboxes to add to our front entry. I'm on our HOA board, and we all agree that we need to have secure boxes for larger parcels, since it's quite a trek to the post office to pick up larger items. It would have to accommodate at least the size of a shoe box.

As you can see from the photos, our individual mailboxes are only large enough for letters and small catalogs. Our magazines get mangled in the process!

We could have the post office install cluster parcel boxes at no cost but they would have to be outside (and ugly). Rather, we all agree we want to complement the style and era of our building (1949 or late Art Deco if that's a style!) I mean, see how cute our building is? We don't want to mar that with standard issue!

I found this on a trip to New Jersey, and I LOVE them! But my neighbors think it's too small.

Any suggestions?

We want something the postal carrier can lock and then provide keys for the recipient (standard procedure as I understand it - I spoke with the post office already). Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! All photos can be found here.

Thank you!

Dear Click Chick,

It's nice to see a question geared toward the benefit of a whole building! This might be our first...

We're going to open this one up to our readers: any ideas??
