We tried Infraworks as well with mixed results. We also tried a plugin to extract information from OpenStreet Maps then pass it through Rhino and import as masses in Revit. Our latest attempt was using Flux Site Extractor (https://blog.flux.io/full-site-context-model-with-just-one-click-c60eb7cf9024#.h2vnfkpu6) but then again the results were not what we were expecting. I guess it all depends on how accurate you want the context to be. If it is for rendering surrounding buildings maybe the accuracy (height/shape) is not as important as if it is for shadows studies, solar radiation, wind analysis, etc. The best answer may be using one of the above to bring buildings that are farther away and manually model the context that's actually close enough to interact with the results you are trying to extract from your building.
