partition wall framing question

hey all!

im remodeling my basement, and im working out this partition wall plan. The door will lead into the workshop, so the opposite side will be unfinished.

I've made a draft using sketchup. There are a few obstacles (2 HVAC ducts, and a PVC drain on the right). I plan on using a drop ceiling for this space as well as a soffit box around the PVC.

question: is this okay to not connect to the floor joists? I'll be fastening the wall on the L & R sides as well as concrete fasteners on the floor.

i'd appreciate any advice/comments/suggestions!

Thank you in advance!

Re: partition wall framing question

2x4's are cheap. Just make another box on top in the big open space and you'll have a wall that doesn't shake when you close the doors.
