WASHINGTON — Hillary Clinton’s campaign is coming to Brooklyn.
With Clinton set to launch her presidential campaign, her team has signed a lease to house its headquarters at One Pierrepont Plaza in Brooklyn Heights.
Sources said Clinton’s campaign signed the lease on Wednesday and can move in Friday.
The signing of the lease, first reported by Politico, starts a 15-day clock for the election team to notify the Federal Election Commission of the creation of a campaign committee.
That means Clinton will likely officially announce her candidacy by April 16.
Clinton’s team had also eyed locations in Queens and Westchester County, people familiar with their search said.
Clinton’s campaign is expected to occupy two floors, approximately 80,000 square feet, in a building where Morgan Stanley and the employees of the Brooklyn U.S. Attorney, currently Attorney General nominee Loretta Lynch, have offices.
The deal was brokered by Keith Caggiano and Roshan Shah of commercial brokerage firm CBRE.
The offices are near a dozen subway lines and the building touts itself as “Modern Offices. Brooklyn Cool.”
But critics said the campaign’s location in an office building some call the “Morgan Stanley building,” in one of New York’s richest neighborhoods, is hardly edgy.
“It’s located just a short ride across the bridge from Wall Street,” America Rising, a pro-Republican political action committee, said. “This is all terrible news for Elizabeth Warren Democrats!”
The building is owned by Forest City Ratner.
Executive chairman Bruce Ratner, who developed the nearby Barclays Center, has contributed $400,000 to Democrats, Bloomberg News reported.
Ratner has never contributed directly to Clinton.
A Clinton spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
