I have successfully put this sign on the building
However, I would like the sign to look a bit 3D:

Well, if you want to keep it simple just use the shadow and emboss effects in the layers tool in Photoshop. This would be a quick and dirty way to do it and it can be improved by which effects you use to achieve the 3D look.

If you want a more refined 3D look. Then use any of the many 3D rendering tools out there (3D Studio Max, Maya, Blender, etc.) and create a 3D logo that you can then import into Photoshop and layer onto the photo. Blender is free and very capable. Any 3D software you use will have a bit of a learning curve but it is the only way to get a true 3D look.

The settings can vary but you will want to use drop shadow and bevel and emboss effects. As to the exact setting, I recommend you play around with them but I would suggest ones that give you enough shadow to make the it look like it is casting shadow on building correctly, and sett the emboss and bevel accordingly. I would suggest a minimum bevel to give logo an extruded shape.

You can try text layers with varying light shade (same one color) in one particular direction with fake shadow...
