61 North Beacon - was to be condos, now seeking commercial tenants

A few years ago, there were plans to convert 61 North Beacon St, the former New Balance building, into 71 condo units. According to the BRA's website the project was fully approved, but the property was sold last September for $4.5M to Raymond Ciccolo, owner of Boston Volvo Village which is located next door. This story describes the new owner's search for commercial tenants for the property. Whatever its eventual use, it would be nice to see the building come back to something like the life it had years ago when it housed the old New Balance outlet store.
