The residence occupies the 73rd through 75th floors of the building.

(Updated 2:53 p.m. Eastern) An octagon-shaped penthouse in midtown Manhattan is on the market for $100 million.

The 8,000-square-foot apartment features six bedrooms, nine bathrooms and a wraparound terrace with 350-degree views of the city. It has an internal elevator and a wine room for 1,000 bottles.

The penthouse, on West 56th Street, is being sold by Long Island real estate developer Steven Klar. It's listed with Prudential Douglas Elliman.

The asking price reportedly is the highest for any New York City apartment currently on the market.

It's also believed to have the highest terraces in the city. It occupies the 73rd through the 75th floors.

Klar bought the property for $4.5 million in 1993, and spent at least as much renovating it.

He said has decided to sell because his 5-year-old son "could potentially get out on the terraces."

Raphael De Niro, a broker with Prudential Douglas Elliman and the son of actor Robert de Niro, said the terraces offer the highest outdoor residential space in the city.
