I recommend insulated overhead doors. Also, when you get to the drywall/finish stage, insulate the walls. These are fairly inexpensive upgrades that will help keep the space more comfortable.
Make sure all your 120v receptacles are on 20A circuits instead of the standard 15A. If you ever plan to use a welder or standing fabrication equipment, add a 240v 30A circuit. Your lift may even run on 240v.
If you can, make your third stall as deep as as the other two. It will probably make the exterior less esthetically pleasing but will make the space more functional.
As it is rendered now, it looks like you don't have much clearance around the lift. If you plan to work on vehicles on the lift, consider placement in the middle space.
