Okay, so the small building on the left should be about four stories high. Then ?, 8-9, 6, ? proceeding from left to right. A person of normal height would be between the length of her hand and the outer length of her briefs if right beside her. If next to the buildings, a person would match the height of the doors. The only way to handle a perspective shot accurately is to trace the lines from the ‘vanishing points’ to the ‘front’ of the picture. A recipe wouldn’t really work. A line passing through the top side edge of building number four should about reach the top of her head. She seems like more about 100 feet. Size up the background first.

And good luck, perspective is hard to get right in Hm.
