Photographer Albert Watson paid $13.15 million for a three-bedroom penthouse in the Edward Minskoff-developed 101 Warren Street in Tribeca.

The 4,518-square-foot condominium at the southeast corner of the building is the second largest in the 227-unit development. Watson’s apartment includes a 1,669-square-foot wrap around terrace.

The sale by the developers closed on August 19, according to public records posted today.

Watson made a handsome profit in February this year when he sold for $34 million a West Village building at 777 Washington Street that he bought for $850,000 as a live-work space in 1985.

The 227-unit, 35-floor tower in Tribeca is part of a million-square-foot mixed-use development designed by architects Skidmore Owings and Merrill.

Barnes & Noble, Bed Bath & Beyond and Whole Foods have signed retail leases at the building.

The apartment, called a “skyhome” by the developers, was listed for $16.3 million on the Corcoran Web site.
