imagine nd filter as a piece of dark glass, it just dim the whole scene down, so to achieve correctly expose photo, u need to either increase exposure time or open aperture or increase iso or use combination of the above. so, by the time the buildings is correctly exposed, the street lamp will still be blown.
the street lamp and the light of the building are the main light source in this photo,
it will burn out no matter what, the only why is to exclude it in this photo.
or you can try taking it during twilight.
