Something that came to my mind and would be a perfect solution (as it includes the plural of skyscraper inhabitants as well and thus is a universal term): SKYFOLK.

It's also naturally easy to pronounce and spell. Short, memorable, concise.


Another suggestion of mine: Skytownsman.

Or... Heavenly Creature. Oy vey.


Seriously. It doesn't have to be too creative, it has to be easily recognizable and understandable.

Something that is instantly connected to skyscraper citizens.
Some portmanteau word is apt for that purpose.

Those are my other favs here:
