Looking for a cool word for someone who lives in a skyscraper

As the title reads. All I can come up with is something like "skylinecitizen" or "skyscraperite" or something of similar blandness. Is there a more catchy word for those who like to live up high and metropolitan at the same time? Thanks!

High roller comes to mind when I think of Donald Trump living in his Trump Tower. ��
Big Spender?
City Slicker?
Spoiled Rotten?

  • The Cliff Hanger
  • The Gothic Scout
  • The Pilot
  • The Pinnacle
  • The SkySail

Cheers!
