Import failed, data is located too far away

Im having problems importing my .osm file into cityengine. It throws the error "import failed, data is located too far away". My .osm file of Rome, NY is in the spacial reference "+proj=longlat +datum=WGS84 +no_defs"  and my height map is in WGS84 UTM 18N (I believe Rome, NY is in the UTM zone 18N.) Even though both the height map and the osm file are in WGS84, i still obtain the "import failed" error. I have attached the .osm file. Any help would be appreciated. Thanx!

This error usually occurs when trying to import data into a scene that already has a coordinate system set that is far away from the osm data's location.

Try dragging it into a new scene.  This worked for me.
