"Units 101-111, 201-211, 301-311, 401-411 and 501-511 are now operational," McCarthy said in an e-mail.

A staff member will be available to escort residents of the 401 Flint St. elderly and handicapped apartment building to their apartment and check them in, the e-mail stated.

Also, residents in apartments 212-214, 312-314, 412, 512-514 could check in Wednesday, said Michael Allen, property manager. Apartments 413 and 414 should be ready Friday, he added.
