Assume each of these 'rich' passengers/renters/owners would be happy with 750 square feet. 5000 people means 3.75 million square feet. If the rooms are 7 feet high, that means 26.25 million cubic feet. The cubic root of this is 297.2 feet.

Of course, this doesn't include the space for the mall, propulsion systems, ...

So your 150 feet would only result in, at maximum, the plane tipping at the halfway point if it was made in a cube. Perhaps a better height would be (297.2 + 200 (fudge factor) + 150) = ~650 feet.

I say, go higher!
