We prorate your rent by the day after the first 28-day billing cycle, so you don't have to pay for a full month when you only have your mobile containers and offices for a few days.

While other companies may be able to do small container modifications, most don't have an in-house fabrication staff or 90,000 sq ft fabrication facility like we do. As a result, they outsource the work on your custom container, so you don't know who's actually building it.

About the show: With music by Jeanine Tesori, book and lyrics by David Lindsay-Abaire, Shrek, The Musical JR. is based on the Oscar®-winning DreamWorks Animation film and the book Shrek by William Steig. The original Broadway production, starring Brian d'Arcy James as Shrek and Sutton Foster as Fiona, ran for twelve months and received a total of twelve Drama Desk Awards and eight Tony Award nominations, including Best Musical. The musical was then adapted to be performed in a student version by educational musical theatre consultancy firm iTheatrics under the supervision of Timothy Allen McDonald.

The Story: Shrek, The Musical JR. follows an ogre named Shrek who has learned the hard way that "people hate the things they cannot understand." For many years he has protected himself from the hurtful actions of those who are scared of him by living as a recluse in a cozy cesspit. One day, his peaceful swamp is disturbed by new tenants: fairy tale misfits - including Pinocchio, the Ugly Duckling, the Wicked Witch, Peter Pan, the Three Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf - have been banished there by the villainous Lord Farquaad. In order to gain back his land, Shrek makes a deal with Farquaad to rescue the feisty princess Fiona from a tower guarded by a fierce dragon. Setting off with his faithful companion, Donkey, Shrek begins the journey of a lifetime filled with adventure, romance, and hilarity.

The city issued a permit May 6 for the $1.1 million project in Southbound Distribution Center along Powers Avenue.

San Francisco-based Veho, a shipping company that provides last-mile e-commerce deliveries to national retail customers, is building-out at Southbound Distribution Center at Powers Avenue east of St. Augustine Road.

The city approved a permit May 6 for Jim Cooper Construction Co. Inc of Birmingham, Alabama, to build-out 59,500 square feet of space for Veho at 2700 Powers Ave. at a construction cost of almost $1.1 million. The property is between the Lakewood and Bowden areas.

Scannell Properties of Indianapolis is the Southbound Distribution Center developer.

Cushman & Wakefield Managing Directors Tyler Newman and Jacob Horsley are the leasing representatives.

A site plan in the NAIOP Commercial Real Estate Development Association Northeast Florida Chapter 2022 Bus Tour book shows the leased space but does not identify Veho.

The site plan shows that the 85,000-square-foot building has 25,000 square feet of space available.

Veho says it is “built for e-commerce,” technology-driven and partners with brands, creating a 20% increase in customer repurchase.

A review response letter with the permit identifies Warby Parker and Hello Fresh as examples of Veho’s retailers.

“At Veho facilities, packages are dropped off via trucks at our dock doors, sorted, and then picked up and delivered by on-demand drivers,” wrote architect Justin Rogers, president of Five South Architecture LLC of Birmingham.

The drivers enter Veho warehouses in their own vehicles, pick up packages and drop them off at customer homes, it wrote.

The warehouses do not use racking systems because all of the packages that come into a Veho facility go out within 24 hours.

“Veho utilizes proprietary technology tools to recruit and schedule on-demand (drivers) in a way that allows for staggered pick-ups and delivery to minimize traffic backups on site,” the architect wrote.

The shipveho.com site says Veho gives package recipients greater insight and control, “letting them know when they will receive their package, when drivers are en route, and enables real-time rescheduling, address changes, and personal delivery instructions.”

It says its technology matches demand for package delivery with a network of qualified crowdsourced driver partners, “ensuring every package is delivered on time and correctly.”

The site says Veho started as a school project while co-founder Itamar Zur attended Harvard Business School.

“Zur constantly experienced issues receiving packages - from getting the dreaded ‘we missed you’ note, to stolen packages. He set out to fix the problem so many customers and brands face,” the site says.

The platform provides customers and e-commerce brands with an “industry record 99.9% average on-time performance for next-day delivery and an average 4.9-star customer rating.”

It says with teammates in 30 U.S. states, Veho will be in 50 markets by the end of 2022.

In Jacksonville, it posts a job opening for a supervisor of ground operations for delivery options.

It says the ground operations supervisor will work with warehouse associates and leads. The position will be responsible for the development of the warehouse staff and for the accuracy of reports, scheduling, communication cross-functionally, “and ensure sort and launch packages are done in an efficient and safe manner, troubleshooting any issues with our cross-functional teams along the way.”

The posting describes Veho as a growth company that looks for team members to grow with it.

Veho’s LinkedIn site says it was founded in 2016.

The shipveho.com site says that in 2017, Veho Technologies, “which aims to replace large delivery trucks with a platform that enables anyone to deliver packages in his or her car,” took home $75,000 as the winner of the Harvard Business School New Venture Competition.

It said the company finished first out of 63 teams in the Student Business Track. Veho said then it planned to invest the cash prize in its technology development and growth of its platform.

As of Feb. 15, Velo announced it raised about $300 million in capital from investors, valuing the company at more than $1.5 billion.

In December it raised $125 million followed by $170 million in February.

It said it expects to grow its headcount from nearly 500 employees y to 2,000 by end of 2022, including hiring more than 150 additional software engineers, “and invest in corporate development capabilities to evaluate opportunities for strategic acquisitions.”

DENVER — Some Front Range counties implemented temporary fire restrictions Thursday ahead of what was being called the most dangerous day for wildfires this year.

Boulder, Jefferson, Douglas, Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests’ Clear Creek, Boulder and Canyon Lakes ranger districts, Clear Creek, Gilpin and Park are among the places that enacted temporary Stage 1 fire bans due to dry and windy conditions that are forecast for Friday, resulting in extreme fire danger.

“The combination of everything coming together on Friday could make it the worst day we’ve seen since the Marshall Fire day,” said Paul Schlatter, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Boulder.

Stage 1 fire restrictions generally ban the use of fireworks, outdoor smoking and open burning of any kind.

The City of Lakewood has also issued a citywide fire ban until 9 p.m. on Friday.

Banned activities include:

Due to extreme wind and dry conditions, Lakewood has instituted a citywide fire ban. This ban is in effect through 9 p.m. Friday, April 22. More information on what this means for residents:https://t.co/cHML4eN2Wg

Boulder County restrictions also prohibit:

On Thursday afternoon, Arapahoe and Adams counties enacted Stage 2 fire restrictions.

Arapahoe County restricted burning in unincorporated areas of the county, which include Centennial, Foxfield and Deer Trail. No fireworks or any other outdoor fires are permitted. That includes, but is not limited to:

Adams County's Stage 2 fire ban prohibits the following:

Earlier Thursday, Boulder County warned people to be very careful of anything that could create a spark or flame. By Thursday evening, they too, had issued Stage 1 fire restrictions.

Boulder Fire Rescue (BFR) said opening burning is never allowed in city limits and that on Red Flag days, such as Friday, opening burning is prohibited in the entirety of Boulder County.

The City of Boulder increases staffing of wildland capable firefighters and engines on days when there's an increased risk of wildfire growth, BFR said in a news release.

"On these days, you may see fire personnel patrolling the neighborhoods in wildland firefighting trucks or moving engines to different locations to best meet response needs," according to the BFR release. "Increasing staffing also helps ensure that the department will have firefighters ready to respond to all emergency calls in the city that may occur on any given day."

Very dry, warm and windy weather combined with dry vegetation will lead to Dangerous Fire Weather Conditions across the Plains, Palmer Divide, Front Range Foothills and South Park on Friday from 11 am to 9 pm. #cowx pic.twitter.com/hi8nzZbSxn

Fire agencies have already fought multiple fires starting this week in locations including Boulder County and Monte Vista.

On Friday, a strong storm system is projected to bring high winds to the state. Combined with what might be the driest air we've seen this year, counties are on high alert.

“Combined with temperatures in the 80s and extremely dry air, any fire that gets started is going to quickly get out of control,” Schlatter said.

He said Friday's conditions could rival any of the bad wildfire days we've seen in recent years, including the Marshall Fire. But even with terrible fire weather conditions, there is no trouble unless there's a spark.
