Delano renovation adds to number of apartments in the area

WICHITA — For years, Ileana and James Monarez have been renovating houses, duplexes and apartments, but their latest remodel now has them looking for a break.

"This one has been a big project," Ileana Monarez says of Harrison Apartments, the 18-unit apartments they renovated at 125 S. Seneca in Delano.

"But it is something that maybe in the future is going to pay off."

The Monarezes are partners in J and J Associates with James' brother, John.

Ileana Monarez also sells real estate for J.P. Weigand & Sons.

She says no one has been in the 1925 apartments for a couple of years.
