The shopping center is located at the corner of Laurel Canyon Blvd. and Roscoe St. The “anchor” store here is Kohl’s, but the center is also home to Bank of America and Chase Bank as well as Ralphs grocery store. Other fast food outlets and assorted retail shops are located here as well, including Baskin-Robbins and Waba Grill.
