question

Well, there are actually two answers to your question.

First, there's the issue of physical size.  The absolute minimum parcel size you need is 75x75m, or 5625m^2 of space.  However, sims are usually divided up into 512m^2 parcels, and the most common parcel size is 32m x 16m -- so to accommodate a 75x75m house or skybox, you're going to need fifteen parcels laid out as three rows (on the "long", 32m side) of five (on the "short" 16m side), for a total estate size of 96x80m. (This is assuming, of course, that the place you're renting from won't cut up the parcels to accommodate the exact size of your build.  Most estate managers prefer to stick with standard 512m^2 plots because that makes it easy to divide up the sim, while odd-size parcels can leave unrentable sub-512m^2 bits everywhere.  Also, having a few extra meters on either size does help reduce the chance that your prims will accidentally encroach on a neighboring parcel that you don't own.)

The second issue is prim capacity (or "land impact", or whatever bloody stupid thing LL calls it now).  A 512m^2 parcel generally gives you 117 prims to work with, so fifteen parcels will give you a capacity of 1755 prims on your estate.  That should be enough to hold it, unless you go completely nuts with a lot of high-prim furnishings or massively-expanded mesh objects. :)

In most cases parcels are sized in multiples of 512 sq meters.  To a parcel that is large enough to hold your bubble home you'll need that 96 x 80 meter plot as mentioned.  A 96 x 80 meter plot is 1680 sq meters.  Knowing that most parcels are sized in mulitples of 512 you will need a 2048 sq meter plot to old your home........but you must remember that those 2048 sq meters can be any shape (a long skinny one or a short fat one).  Your plot needs to be as square in shape as possible.

Your math is a bit off, I'm afraid.

96 x 80 is 7680, not 1680.

The OP's 75 x 75 skybox needs a minimum of 5625 square meters. If they can find an estate manager (or a mainland parcel) who's willing to carve out a square 75m on a side for them, all well and good, but most sim managers I've seen seem to prefer to do fixed 512m plots at a 16x32 size, since it makes the math come out even along both the north/south and east/west axes without any leftover bits at the edges. :) Hence, my recommendation that they'll probably need to rent a 96x80 rectangle, arranged as a block of 3 x 5 parcels.  (3x32=96, 5x16=80)

75 x 75 divided by 2 times the length plus the square rooth minus........err.........you need a big plot of land.........or sky.......i think.......
