I don't think there is anything wrong with your skybox, I think it's the brushwork in those buildings.

Try pressing alt-p in the editor, a dialog box should come up. Try clicking on each different type of problem and then click solve or fix (can't remember which, I'm on mobile). If a brush or two stretches out to infinity because of this, delete those brushes and then remake them.

Hope this helps.

I once had the same problems with you. I bet you are making these buildings on the skybox place you got there and then just trying to move the buildings to match the place you want them to be. If you try this you will have to do a compile and open tf2 and then your map every time you want to see if you did it right but no fear , billboy is here! (sorry for this lol )

this is a link for how to make a detailed skybox easily : https://tf2maps.net/threads/guide-seamless-3d-skyboxes.24667/
personally i find it really usefull and It helped me a lot. when you try making what this guide is telling you i suggest making a big skip brush around the playable area of your map and include that to your skybox just to avoid future issues / mistakes with the skybox.

I hope i helped you :D
