The building is most recently known as the Brandywine Suites Hotel, part of the Clarion Hotels group. To note, the Market Street side of the property was home to the landmark Braunstein’s Department Store.
As of August 2013, Jerry's Artarama, a family-owned and operated art supply house offering discount prices, artist resources and hospitality, opened in 704 N. Market Street, making it a prime destination for artists and students alike. Based in Raleigh, North Carolina, this is Jerry’s Artarama's 17th retail store, in addition to its significant online presence. DCAD is pleased to offer its students and the community alike the luxury of having a full-service national art supply store on campus.
