It seems you cannot force him to stop smoking. But if you approach this as a shared problem rather than a problem owner maybe a solution can be found. If, as you say, this is making it difficult to sell or rent in the building, that should technically affect the owner in question as well. You might also be able to get him to realize that the smoke actually bothers others.
Not sure what solutions may be possible, but it might perhaps include some kind of smoke management system tgat would be purchased and maintained by the condo corp. I know, crazy, right?
Might there be an available unit, farther from the entrance, that could be offered in some kind of trade? Perhaps a guest suite. You’d need to deal with the condition of his old unit before it would be suitable as a guest suite. I know, crazy, right?
