Michael Lewis, the owner of a unit as exclusive condo 15 Central Park West, has listed his pad for a hefty mark-up over the price he paid for the property in 2008.

Lewis wants $30 million for the pad, according to a listing posted on StreetEasy today by Brown Harris Stevens broker Jill Roosevelt. That’s nearly three times the $10.1 million he paid six years ago, records show.

Roosevelt did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Lewis could not be reached.

Recent sales in the building indicate that Lewis’ ask may not be far-fetched. NASCAR star Jeff Gordon sold his apartment at the exclusive building for $25 million last year, more than twice the $9.67 million he paid in 2007, and hedge funder Zachary Jared Schreiber sold his for $29 million after paying $11.19 million in 2008.

Prices at the Robert A.M. Stern-designed building averaged $5,847 per square foot in 2013, according a report recently released by data website CityRealty.

Lewis’ 2,761-square-foot, 35th-floor home has three bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, according to the listing, as well as a dining room and walk-in closet. The building, called home in the past by several other celebrities, including embattled Yankee slugger Alex Rodriguez, has a 14,000-square-foot fitness center, a game room, a wine cellar and a screening room, as well as an onsite garage.
