I would hang some ply and make some clamshelled cabinets. You can effectively triple or better you utilization of wall space area by using pegboard clamshelled on swing out doors inside of cabinets.

Another thought would be to install a sink in there .Guys who have utility sinks in their shops swear by them. Should be a drain near-by that water heater.

And you still would have room for a mobile workbench or a few other mobile tool stands in that space.

And personally I don’t care for shelving units that stand on the floor. In small shops floorspace
is gold, so I would suggest running single long shelves near the top of the wall. Save your
floorspace for mobile tools and assembly areas.

I would also agree that bringing up the floor to be level with that part would be good. But that
would entail quite a bit of work you may not want to get into.
