Michael Malik, Sr., a Michigan-based businessman who cashed in by bringing casino gambling to Detroit in the 1990s, has put his Rushmore penthouse on the market for $13.5 million.

Malik purchased the lush digs in 2010 for $5.4 million, ten days after filing for divorce from his then-wife of six weeks.

The approximately 3,100-square-foot condominium reportedly underwent a two-year renovation, which appears to have included a generous sprinkling of gold paint and lion statues.

There is also a grand living room, formal dining room with a gas fireplace, eat-in kitchen, four bedrooms and four and a half baths. According to the listing, the furniture was all created specifically for the penthouse.
