I added two terms this time as these are terms that are based on the same idea of density, but are different appearances: highlife and citylife.

It is already a very nice and interesting web site, the Skyscraper dictionary, my compliments.

Herewith I want to do a suggestion for another, mostly in Europe common skyscraper phenomen:

Bisstrict
~ high-rise business district, located outside the orginal (historical) city centre due to high-rise restrictions.

We are located in the Bisstrict / Politics call for more bisstrictions to protect historical sights./ The North part of the city is bisstricted.


Two examples:

La Défense, Paris:

Zuidas, Amsterdam:

Source: www.greenbusinessclub.nl

Also London, Milan and Madrid has similar bisstricts.

A lack of bisstrictions may cause Brusselization. Although, the Gare du Nord district can be seen as a bisstrict as well I think.

Just added the biztrict. Hope you don't mind me changing the -ss into a -z as that looks a bit better I think, plus biz is the more used abbreviated version of business.

I don't mind! I am arleady very pleased my suggestion is added.

I do like the Défensism as a term also actually, as it can refer to the fact that biztricts are a result of defending / protecting the historical city centre.

However, thanks for the addition!

Yeah, problem with Défensism is that in the English spoken world it refers too much to the noun defense, plus that an -ism is really a set of values, which the development of a business district is not. Biztrict is perfectly fine I guess. Thanks again for suggesting.

How would you call a small penthouse structure on the top of a skyscraper (probably not planned initially and added during construction to increase height, or added post-completion)?

^ Skyvilla and skypod were coined for that, but depending on the kind of structure that's being added, skyshack might be good term for those.

The google translated version of the wikipedia page tells me that skyscraper has been closed because of structural issues.

Quote:
In 2007 the building was officially closed to the public because the foundation of the building is not standing upright and tilted a few degrees and are considered dangerous to the safety of building occupants.
As such it should be defined primarily as a tryscraper but these terms are not mutually exclusive.
