  • Philadelphia Lodge No. 2 BPOE, also known as the Philadelphia Athletic Club, was a historic Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks (BPOE) lodge occupying 306-320 N. Broad Street in the Logan Square neighborhood of Center City Philadelphia. The lodge, built between 1922 and 1925, was a 13-story building. The BPOE moved into the new lodge from the 4-story building at 1320–1322 Arch Street, built in 1904–1906 and designed by Francis Caldwell and Edward Simon, that still stands. The Elks occupied the bottom five floors, with residential/hotel accommodations in the higher eight floors. The lower floors included meeting rooms, restaurants, ballrooms, and auditoria. The entrance featured a two-storey portal framed in limestone and capped by a giant keystone. Although being added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1984, the building was purchased by Hahnemann University for $2.35 million in 1991 and was demolished the following year. (en)
