One of the richest women in the United Kingdom, she listed the glassy duplex in the Richard Meier designed building in June for $35 million but hasn’t found a buyer yet. She paid $20.6 million for the sprawling four-bedroom unit in 2005.

    If it doesn’t sell, jack up the price. What a strategy!

    louise blouin and her media company owe millions of dollars to hundreds of parties globally including R.R. Donnelly in New York and unfortunate persons who worked for her and then were never paid. sad that the state of New York allows this type of bad behaviour on U.S. soil. louise blouin is not even a U.S. citizen. consider yourself warned!

    Louise Blouin is a total rogue. You can be certain that anything she sells is highly overpriced. She is spending her time ripping off people. Her place is in jail !
