This room is just about as bad as it gets for front projection.
Light walls, large windows, ceiling fan in the center, high walls, no real audio or cabling plan.
I would get a 80" TV for that wall at the front, put a credenza under it, and call it done.
If I were to consider a projector, I would get one with the throw distance to fill a 120" diagonal screen from the back of the room. I would build a soffit to put a motorized screen into at the front of the room and have it drop down in front of my TV.
I would only use it after dark.
I would put in 5 properly positioned in-wall speakers at the very least, with a subwoofer located back in a corner by the couch somewhere discretely.
I'm not sure if this is the only choice you have, but it's going to be tough during the daytime to achieve a really solid image unless you address the windows early on.
That ceiling fan with the flood light in the center would be the second thing I would address.
