Who will occupy Louis Boston's former home

Earlier this winter iconic retailer, Louis Boston, closed their doors on Newbury Street.  With many retailers hurting this is not news except that Louis Boston was closing shop on Newbury Street to expand into a new neighborhood that is still being developed call Fort Point Channel. Additionally, Louis Boston does not occupy just any building - they occupy the crown jewel of Newbury Street (Boston's version of Fifth Avenue or Rodeo Drive for those not familiar).

Speculation abounds in articles written by The Boston Globe wondering aloud what fashion house or department store may decide to take over the space.  I've included a photograph taken by The Boston Globe to show you the contrast from the home on Newbury Street to the new home of Louis Boston.
