Pokemon Licensing Executive Al Kahn May be on the Search for a New Home and Asks $18.95 Million for
Al Kahn, the man who loosed Pokémon on the masses, is selling his four-story penthouse apartment in midtown Manhattan for US $18.95 million.
Mr. Kahn, 69, a licensing executive, introduced a number of animated series to the U.S. and global markets, including Japanese imports “Pokemon,” and “Yu-Gi-Oh!” He also came up with the term “Pokemon,” after deciding its original name “pocket monsters” sounded too Americanized.
He is asking $18.95 million for his four-story penthouse at Park South Lofts at 43-45 East 30th Street in Midtown South. The 4,300-square-foot, three-bedroom apartment comes with seven outdoor terraces spanning 1,975 square feet.
