White oak towers is literally full of ----! The front desk... Nice. Managers, management a total joke! 1million people live there and they have only 50,000 parking spots with stupid towing policy. For a whole yr I endured hoodlums smoking pot… Full Review ▶

This apartment building overall was a horrible experience. This is an unsteady apartment building. Air-conditioning barely works, roaches own more rooms and have more families here than the people. No matter how many times you call for a bug spraying the… Full Review ▶

The Whole building should be condemened (it is roach infested), and is in very poor condition. The staff and management are rude, and uncaring. The security is non-existent. There have been several incidents of tire slashing, and people's car were broken… Full Review ▶

95 percent of the messages from managment include the threat to tow your car. I suspect they own an interest in the towing company. Management is bipolar - the people at the desk are nice enough, but all the decisions are… Full Review ▶
