It depends on the location; how far back you can get, etc. Since you say you can't rent a shift lens, I'd try to rent a 16-35L and/or a 10-22 so you have some framing flexibility to cover all bases.

The 60D is 18Mp, plenty of resolution for big prints. Before cropping it will produce a 12 X 17 print at 300PPI, and can easily be resized without resampling/interpolation by changing the print resolution. 240PPI is fine for most prints hung on a wall, and that would give a 14 X 22 print.
Resampling/uprezing would also work fine if it's not overdone, so print size shouldn't be a concern. In that respect there's not that much difference between a 60D and a 5D Mark II. It's not until you get into medium format backs with resolutions above 33Mp that that really become relevant.
Lighting will be the main issue. Using exposure bracketing will allow for combining images if the dynamic range is too extreme in any single shot.
A sturdy tripod is a must, and take the time to get your shots perfectly level with major horizontal lines like rooflines, large window sills, etc. Since you won't have a perspective-control lens the vertical lines may converge, so some perspective adjustments in post may be required; frame your shots with some extra space on the sides to leave room for cropping.
