Generally yes, you'll have to model every building in the city, that's how the artists in the indie project I'm working on are doing it.
You could try to re-use some buildings (parts of them anyway) but very carefully to not make the repetition noticeable...
Depending on how the game will play, in a game with enclosed levels you just have to model the sides of the building that will be visible/use 2D art for background buildings, etc.
P.S: You could also look into procedural cities, but hand made models you always look better (IMO anyway).
