SAN JOSE — Briggs Development intends to transform a long-time gay bathhouse property near downtown San Jose into an office building with plenty of outdoor workspaces and gathering areas that workers seek in a world jolted by the coronavirus. The closure ended 46 years of operations of the bathhouse at The Alameda, which is just a few blocks from the footprint of a proposed transit village being developed by Google. The redevelopment of the building, which will largely retain the exterior structure, the concepts show, is being fashioned to keep in mind what tenants and their employees might prefer in the wake of social distancing restrictions and other concerns. Mark Ritchie, president of San Jose-based Ritchie Development, a commercial real estate firm, arranged the purchase. Plus, the location also benefits from being near the western edges of downtown San Jose, where major development projects are being pondered.
