Brooklyn may have been #ReadyforHillary for a while. Now, Hillary Clinton is finally ready for Brooklyn. The likely Democratic nominee is making good on rumors that her imminent presidential campaign will be headquartered in Brooklyn, signing a lease for 80,000 square feet at Forest City Ratner’s 1 Pierrepont Plaza.

The Brooklyn Heights office building has been marketed as “Modern Offices. Brooklyn Cool.” Clinton’s team will occupy two floors, according to Politico.

Morgan Stanley and the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York are also located in the building.

Huma Abedin, Clinton’s chief of staff, toured the building weeks ago. Since February, there has been talk about Clinton setting up shop in the borough.

Clinton is yet to announce her official presidential campaign, but the signing of this lease starts the clock ticking for her to go public. According to election rules, she now has until April 16 to launch an exploratory committee or a candidate committee, having signed the lease on April 1.
