Can the word "address" be used figuratively, to mean a place that people turn to (for help, advice, etc.).

If not – what would be a better word for this connotation?

Thanks!

EDIT: I'm looking for something that would be applicable here:

The Wonderland Building Center is the country's main ** address ** for any Wonderlandian seeking advice on building or renovating his or her home.

  • I'll try to narrow down my search. "Place" isn't what I'm looking for. I'll give you an example: The Wonderland Building Center is the country's main ** address ** for any Wonderlandian seeking advice on building or renovating his or her home. – Ilanysong May 4 '15 at 8:20

What's wrong with place?

A building or area used for a specified purpose or activity:

EDIT: In your example, destination should work

The Wonderland Building Center is the country's main destination for any Wonderlandian seeking advice on building or renovating his or her home.


And no, I don't think you can use address in that sense
