Limitations of a lens or limitations of photography?

I’m a cityscapes photography enthusiast who likes to shoot at blue hour (with long exposure). One thing I care about is sharpness of city buildings in the photos.

Technically, is it possible to keep all buildings in the photo sharp, even those at distance (like 4km away from where I shoot)?

Currently I shoot with Nikon D610 with Nikon 18-35mm. Shooting with a top-end body and a prime lens will improve the sharpness? Or, it’s not quite possible to keep all those faraway buildings sharp no matter how good my gear is?

FYI, I want to achieve this with a single exposure, no focus-stacking, etc.

Thanks in advance for any input!
