It's pretty difficult to ID a plant from pictures of just the leaves or flowers. From the looks of the new growth, it appears to me that the plant will grow back to its former height.

Perhaps you could post some pictures of the flowers and leaves, when the plant blooms? That would help a lot. :)

I don't think it's a forsythia. Here is an image of a forsythia in leaf:
