I agree with those that said higher placed outlets as there is no reason to bend over to use an outlet. You might also consider a couple of ceiling outlets or cord drops. I had those in my old basement shop in Illinois and I miss them in my garage shop (the door gets in the way).
I would really consider some 220/240 VAC connections, better now than working them in later.
Check on your local requirements for GFCI protection?

One last point, go with LED lighting if at all possible as they save money, don’t draw bugs (no UV), don’t hum, don’t flicker, no strobe effect on rotating tools, and instant on! Have I sold you on these?
