Daikanyama Address Tower
The 50 floors tall skyscraper hotel Masumi and Mary Sera live in during the Romance Novelist Murder Case shares its position (but not its model) with the Daikanyama Address Tower, the only skyscraper of this kind in the vicinity from which such a panorama like the one depicted through her windows can be seen. The building is a popular spot for the filming of live action dramas. In the manga of Detective Conan, this place seems to be part of Beika.
109 Department Store
Momoko Aoyama passes the 109 Department Store in chapter 2 of 100% Tantei Monogatari while in Shibuya. It's also visible in the background after Akako Koizumi teleports Kaitou Kid and herself directly to Shibuya Crossing while stopping time in episode 5 of Magic Kaito 1412.
This famous place is visited by Kogoro and Ran Mouri, Conan Edogawa, Heiji Hattori and Kazuha Toyama during a shopping tour at the beginning of the Wedding Murder Case. Akako Koizumi teleports Kaitou Kid and herself directly to Shibuya Crossing while stopping time in episode 5 of Magic Kaito 1412, with the QFRONT Building (which, while located in Udagawa Town, directly borders Dougenzaka and faces the Crossing) and its Tsutaya Store (renamed "Sutaya"), as well as the buildings of the 109, Forever 21 and UC Department Stores visible in the background.
Shibuya Mark City
Shibuya Station (渋谷駅 Shibuya-eki) is the central train station of the ward. It can be seen during Ran Mouri's view from the window of Masumi Sera's apartment inside the skyscraper hotel and is mentioned in the Magic Kaito TV Specials as "Shibōya Station". It's also the place Rei Furuya and Yuya Kazami are at on the cover of the ninth chapter of Zero's Tea Time.
During the Drug Trading Case, Conan Edogawa goes to Ebisu Bridge, which is in the district of the same name of Shibuya ("secretly" being followed by Ai Haibara and the Detective Boys). Interestingly, it's implied to be in or near Beika here, considering they were on the way to Professor Hiroshi Agasa's house and went to the bridge by foot. The name of the bridges (this one and an identically named in Osaka) also play a bigger role during this case.
Harajuku Station (原宿駅 Harajuku-eki) is the central train station of its eponymous district, which appeared as Karajuku Station (空宿駅 Karajuku-eki) in the anime and as Sorajuku Station (空宿駅 Sorajuku-eki) in the movies.
This district gets mentioned in Saguru Hakuba's thoughts during the Sun Halo story arc from Magic Kaito as one of the places the truck with Kaitou Kid and Aoko Nakamori was driving through before leaving Tokyo.

The train/subway rides on the fictional "Tohto Misesaki Line", which is a play on the real Tobu Isesaki Line, with the next stop being "Ebesu" - most likely a pun on Ebisu, which is a district of Shibuya. According to the destination board, it also mentions "Shibōya" as a destination.
