Answer: It's hard to say without inspecting the tree whether or not there is a possibility of it regenerating growth in the bare area. It may even out its growth as it continues to recover from its ordeal. I'd give it another year to show signs of regrowth. If it doesn't produce new shoots by then, it may never and you might want to find a replacement with a better shape and form.
Best wishes with your landscape!
