a few comments.
I agree with Nico about shadows. When maxi's and dino's are used from far away they become one source. There are no perceived multiple shadows.
If we are talking about sunlight then he could easily use 3200 bulbs. I find the actual color temp of the sun is closer to 32 than pure skylight which could be higher than 55. If you wanted bluer light the Dichroic bulbs mentioned by David R are a great way to go. I think they are 4800 or so. If you can find them. They may be hard to find. Someone told me they aren't making them anymore, but that would need to be checked.
A condor and 6k will be great and more flexible for lighting positions if money is not an issue. If money is an issue, than tungsten and the roof top is cheaper. Just have to get power up there.
Is there room for a condor on that street with the planters and trees in the way? Can they close off traffic? Do you have to leave a lane for emergency vehicles like we do in NYC?
If you want a really kick ass bright light try 1200 watt fire starters in the Ruby 7's. The single biggest advantage a Ruby seven has over maxi brutes and dino's is that it is focusable. sure you can pan a row of bulbs in a maxi or dino, but you can't focus all bulbs in one spot like a Ruby seven. If you have enough manpower and money to get a bunch of 24 bulbs dinos and 4/0 up there then that could be brighter than a Ruby seven. But that would probably be overkill.
David mentioned ACL's which are terrific but you can use AC or DC as long as 4 30 volt bulbs are wired in series for 120 volt AC US power. Some rental house have a wiring adapter for that purpose. Or make your own.
There may be no gel correction on the dino's in the UN set up but that picture does not show what they may have had on the windows or not.
I recommend a couple of ruby sevens on the roof too. Looks like it is perfect for that location and one can easily roll around a couple of road runners or cranks stands up there and the roof is actually higher than your set.
If money is not and issue you could do a condor and have a light or two on the roof as well.
Just my 2 cents. Good luck.
