Mallinckrodt in the Park Condominiums are located at 1041 Ridge Road, just north of Lake Avenue in Wilmette. Originally a convent, girls high school and college, the building was converted into condominiums in 2005. Situated on a verdant park, the building has retained much of its original 1900s architectural features. It is an active, vibrant community of owner-occupied units for those 55 and older.
The majority of the 81 units have two bedrooms, with a few one and three-bedroom units. The units are well-appointed, featuring 11' ceilings, hardwood floors, high-end chefs' kitchens with stainless steel appliances, and in-unit laundry facilities. Large windows provide natural light to the scenic surrounds. In addition, all apartments have spacious closets plus an individual storage unit. Heated underground parking as well as plentiful guest parking is available. Other special amenities include building concierge services, elevators, and 24-hour secure access to the building.
Located on 14 acres of Wilmette Park District grounds, residents are only steps from winding paths, perennial gardens, summer concerts, and a skating pond during the colder months. The Mallinckrodt Center, operated by the Wilmette Park District, occupies the south 1st floor wing of the building and features a large common room and kitchen available for events, classes, outings, a library, and fitness room.
