They modelled all the doors, bricks and windows and wrote a script that builts entire buildings. My point is you can make buildings in Maya, so why doesn't anyone do it?
They might have projection mapped them, used another progarme say Vue, or even imported cad drawings as their basis.
Theres lots of ways to do things.
If I was to make a building I would knock out the basic shape then use bumps etc to get all the details
