This $12.95 Million Penthouse Is The Clear Answer To Your 'Empire' Withdrawals

Wednesdays are a sad day for "Empire" fans now that season one of the breakout Fox-network show has wrapped. But there are a couple of ways to get your fix.

One: You could stream reruns of the show on Hulu. Or, two: You can take a tour and perhaps even purchase this $13 million penthouse featured on the show.

According to listing agent, Phil Skowron, the 3-bedroom, 4-bath condo makes appearances throughout the show, mostly in the pilot episode. (It looks pretty similar to Hakeem's bachelor pad in the scene captured here.) And like the fictional characters who were said to live (or work or otherwise build their empire) there, the home is most certainly over the top.

Occupying 9,300-square-feet of a condo building along Lake Michigan, the apartment features a steam room, basketball court, squash court, and 500-gallon hot tub with a popup TV. There are three 500-gallon salt water aquariums with live reef corals and exotic fish, 25-foot ceilings and over $1,000,000 worth of exotic stone, including backlit onyx baseboards and columns, Skowron says.

Basically, Lucious Lyon approved.
